Delve into environment during Cattle Point event

Friends of Uplands Park staging public seaside gathering

Explore tidal pools and sub-tidal crevices at Cattle Point this Sunday (June 9) with naturalists from the Friends of Uplands Park.

They will lead demonstrations through the diverse ecological area, teaching visitors such things as how how to tread softly on rocks, where to find and watch shore birds, anemones and crabs. Dip nets, lenses, collecting tubs and identification books will be available, but binoculars are recommended for bird-watching, as well as waterproof shoes or boots to tackle the terrain.

The event runs from 10:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. (low tide). Contact Margaret Lidkea at 250-595-8084 for more information.
