Upcoming Walk: Saturday April 14th 2018, Campbell River Estuary

Saturday April 14, Campbell River Estuary

The Campbell River Estuary is known world-wide for its  Tyee Pool, where monster salmon have been caught, but  there is more than that. Like most of the estuaries near industrial sites, it suffered from contamination from industrial waste and destruction of the riparian boarders. Previously home to three sawmills, complete with land sorts and log haul-outs, the place was trashed and dead.  Campbell River adopted the  Estuary Management Plan was adopted in 1996, and extensive restoration has occurred. Today’s walk will be led by Loys, and may include a stop for lunch after the walk. Bring water and wear suitable boots, and dress for the weather.

Details on the Restoration plan are available from the Campbell River City website:
