Upcoming AFA Events and Hikes!

April 23, 2010

Sunday, April 25 - Nature/ Old-Growth Walk in Mount Douglas Park: Oak Bay-Gordon Heads’ Old Growth in its Own Backyard!!! Meet: 1pm in the lower parking lot (at the bottom of the drive up to the top lookout). Join Benna Keoghoe of the Ancient Forest Committee of Oak Bay-Gordon Head, popular CRD naturalists Darren and Claudia Copley, and members of the Ancient Forest Alliance to see the little-recognized and little-appreciated old growth ecosystem in the heart of urban Victoria (including its largest Douglas fir!). This will be a fairly easy walk, about 90 minutes at the most. It is of course recommended to wear suitable footwear and rain gear if necessary.
