From an email by Jocie to the Botany Group on September 11.
A quiet lakeshore is always a nice place to poke around looking at plants. Here are some plants from Blackwater Lake, which is north of Campbell River. This can be accessed from the Blackwater Main, which is a gravel road on the left shortly before Roberts Lake (where the now closed cafe used to be). It’s about an 8 km drive from the turnoff, and the lake is about a 100 metre walk from the pullout.
I was there in late August and there were a lot of baby toads crossing the road…not sure if that is still happening, but if toad migration is still going you might want to wait a week or two before planning your visit!
