You are invited to come out and take part in several guided nature walks being offered by the Millard-Piercy Watershed Stewards on Aug. 17 and 18.
These free, guided nature walks will be a great opportunity to learn about the diverse plants and creatures that inhabit the watershed.
The Millard Creek Conservation Area will be explored with Alison Millham, education and outreach specialist. These 1.5-hour walks are rated easy-moderate in difficulty and require sturdy footwear.
The Millard-Piercy Watershed Stewards is a non-profit organization with a mission to assess, restore, and maintain the ecosystems of the Millard-Piercy Watershed. We strive to promote community stewardship to help ensure long-term watershed protection to the benefit of both people and the natural environment.
The meeting time and place Aug. 17 and 18 is 10 a.m. at the lower Millard Park entrance, accessed via 31st Street in Courtenay. As parking is limited, consider carpooling or bicycling to this event.
