Pink Fawn Lilies and other wildflower delights along the Cowichan River
We will spend the day exploring various sites along the Cowichan River with the Honeymoon Bay Ecological Reserve as our target destination. The Reserve was established to preserve a showy stand of the rare Pink Fawn Lily (Erythronium revolutum) and our visit is planned to catch the bloom at its peak. Genevieve Singleton, volunteer warden for the reserve, is a wonderful naturalist and will share her knowledge of the plants, the watershed issues and the history of the reserve with us. Bring a lunch and drinks for this all day outing. Registration is required for this trip as the number of visitors is limited. For more information and to register, please call Marilyn Lambert 250-477-5922.

FIELD TRIP (LEVEL 4)
Enjoy all that Jocelyn Hill has to offer
Join Rick to enjoy the wildflowers and the birds as well. Our goal is to see the gold stars (Crocidium multicaule) in bloom but we will not be disappointed if we miss them, as there is an amazing array of other delights and great panoramic views from the ridge. We might see a Golden Eagle on the ridge or hear or see a Sooty Grouse. Please note the trail is steep and challenging but will be taken at a leisurely pace to enjoy the habitat. Bring a lunch and drinks.
