Free walk at Helen McKenzie Lake

Free walk at Helen McKenzie Lake

Comox Valley Nature is offering a free interpretive light hike to Helen McKenzie Lake in Strathcona Park.

This is an opportunity to learn about sub-alpine ecology, and gain an appreciation of the problems it will face in the future as it adjusts to what climatologists and politicians alike now acknowledge is the “new normal.”

This walk will be led by Dr. Loys Maingon (RPBio), president of Comox Valley Nature.

The nine-kilometre walk  is scheduled for this Saturday, Aug. 8 from 9 a.m. – noon. Participants should wear sturdy footwear and bring drinking water. Meet at parking lot at the bottom of Strathcona Parkway (just off the Inland Highway) at 8:30 a.m., and at trailhead at the Strathcona Wilderness Institute (next to the Raven Lodge) at the entrance to Paradise Meadows.
