Spring Break Restoration Camp – Cancelled

Spring Break Watershed Restoration Camp – Mar 19th & 20th – Cancelled


We are sad to announce that the Restoration March Break Camp scheduled for Thursday and Friday, March 19th and 20th, is now CANCELLED, consistent with increasing Corona virus health advisories.

Saturday’s World Planting Day on the lower Cowichan River is also CANCELLED.  We have made these decisions in consultation with our leader team and our restoration partner, the BC Conservation Foundation (BCCF).

We are looking forward to rescheduling the restoration camp on a weekend in June (watch for dates)  and will be working with BCCF and the Earth Guardians – Cowichan Valley to reschedule the World Planting/Restoration Day on the same beautiful site on the North Arm of  Cowichan River in the late spring or early summer, when we hope that our contribution to “flattening the curve of the Corona Virus” will again be allowing us to gather together in nature.

Stay tunes for these upcoming events – there will be opportunities for children and youth to get outdoors, soak up the beauty and joy of nature, and make a difference in the Cowichan Watershed by putting on their gloves and boots and getting to work with our education team, restoration biologist David Polster at Stoltz Bluff, and with BCCF biologist Danny Swainson where the North Arm of the Cowichan meets the Estuary.

Participants will learn about and explore native vegetation, river ecology and learn about planting native species and about the process of “live-staking” for restoring watersheds.  Children and youth will come home with new skills and inspired by nature and their experience of working together to restore a natural ecosystem!  It will happen!  And in the meantime wash you hands and take care of each other.
