Youth lead Trent River Park tour

On July 23 at 1 p.m. two youth from the Youth and Ecological Restoration Program (YER) will lead a public tour at Comox Valley Regional District (CVRD), Trent River Park.

During the tour the youth will share details on the ecology, history and their knowledge of being in the park.

The Trent River Park, YER Phase II project is funded by the Ministry of Children and Family Development and CVRD. The youth will do an ecological inventory with the YER Coordinator and Registered Professional Biologist, Tim Ennis. They will gain work experience and training with scientific data collection, teamwork and communication skills, and then lead the tour.

The park is located in a mature riparian forest in the lower reaches of the Trent River. This river is a wildlife migration corridor and listed as a protection priority in ‘A Natural Selection: Rural Comox Valley Parks and Greenways Strategic Plan 2011 – 2030.’ Trent River retains an ancient forest ecosystem that extends from the Inland Island Highway to the Old Island Highway.

Trent River Park is located south of Courtenay, go along the Old Island Highway, turn right at the Royston lights, left onto Cameron Road, right on Baden Road and meet at the parking area at the start of the Royston Cumberland Railway Trail. Sturdy footwear is required due to steep terrain.

Please join us for this youth led public tour on July 23 at 1 p.m. FMI contact Wendy Kotilla at wkotilla@shaw.ca or 250-336-8487; visit the YER website at youthecology.ca.
