In the last free public walk of the summer, Comox Valley Nature is offering a free, guided public walk in the Rosewall Creek watershed this Sunday starting at the trailhead at 10:15 a.m.

Set aside as  part of the provincial park system, Rosewall Creek is an important ecological representative of mid-size Vancouver Island east-coast rivers that lie over the Nanaimo formation.

Historically, a productive salmon river, it is now home to an important fish hatchery and a bottled-water business, which co-exist with the rich biodiversity of the provincial park.

Interested participants are asked to meet at either the Old Church on Harmston Street at 9:30 a.m., or at the Rosewall Creek Provincial Park parking lot at 10:15. The walk will be up to the falls. The complete walk should take about two or three hours.

This is a level established trail walk up to the falls area where the trail requires some climbing. This trail is suitable for people of all ages and participants can pace themselves.

The educational walk will be guided by biologist Loys Maingon, president of Comox Valley Nature. It will cover aspects of the local flora and fauna of the Rosewall riparian zone.

For more information on CVNS, visit www.comoxvalleynaturalist.bc.ca or contact Maingon at 250-331-0143.
