May Nature Walk a fundraiser

Comox Valley Nature continues its monthly public nature walk series with a fundraiser for Cumberland Recreation and children education. Normally, CVN public walks are free; however, in this instance a fee of $8 is being charged by Cumberland to raise funds for children education. All proceeds will be donated to purchase early years physical education equipment. Participants who are not CVN members should pre-register with Cumberland Recreation (

This walk, hosted by Dr. Loys Maingnan,  is intended to serve as an introduction to birding at Cumberland Marsh and bird habitat ecology.  In May, Cumberland marsh is home to about 35 species of birds including some spectacular cavity-nesting birds and Central-American migrants.

Interested participants are invited to meet in front of  Jumbo’s Cabin at Cumberland’s Chinatown entrance on Sunday, May 1 at 9 a.m.
