YER tour through Comox Valley’s newest regional park

Morrison Headwaters Nature Preserve tour July 7

Morrison Headwaters Nature Preserve is Comox Valley’s newest regional park.

Comox Valley Land Trust and Comox Valley Regional District, along with many other groups and individuals, recently purchased 55 acres of private property to add to the already protected 24-acre Beecher Linton Conservation Area. This is an incredible environmental victory for our community.

Two youth from Youth and Ecological Restoration (YER) will be immersed in a five-day project to document the ecology of the Morrison Creek headwaters.

Tim Ennis of Latitude Conservation Solutions and Jim Palmer from the Morrison Creek Streamkeepers will inform youth about the ecological diversity of this place. The youth will then share their knowledge on the public tour.

This YER, Phase II project is funded by BC Ministry of Children and Family Development, and the CVRD through a Grant-in-Aid.

Join us Sunday, July 7 at noon for the YER youth-guided tour of this current land acquisition.

The tour starts at 4446 Lake Trail Rd. Drive up Lake Trail Road, go under the Inland Highway and it is the first driveway on the left.

Someone will be available to help with parking.
