One of the Comox Valley’s favourite recreation areas, enjoyed by mountain bikers and hikers alike, the Comox Lake Bluffs region is above all a frequently overlooked special ecological jewel.
It is registered as a rare northernmost arbutus / manzanita / maritime juniper ecosystem. It is home to many rare and endangered plant species.
As such, it has been designated since 1996 by the province as an ecological reserve.
As part of its public educational mandate Comox Valley Nature (Comox Valley Naturalists Society) will host a one-hour talk on the Comox Bluffs and the ecological reserve system this Sunday at the Filberg Centre at 7 p.m.
Helen Robinson, one of the Comox Valley’s best-known plant taxonomists, will speak.
