Description

Join Warrick Whitehead on a hike to the Koksilah River Ancient Forest to see this incredibly accessible old growth forest with tall Douglas Firs, up to 800 years old. He will talk about the biology and history of the area and will also provide details of his dream to have the Koksilah Ancient Tree area protected and made into a park. Expect to see birds and other wildlife on the trail to the trees. The hike is 5 kms total on a good but rough trail, wear sturdy shoes, bring raingear, a snack and lunch and water. We'll have lunch down by the river. A hiking stick would also be a useful thing to have along. No dogs please.

Warrick Whitehead is a volunteer ecological reserve warden, has sat on the Strathcona Park Public Advisory Committee, led countless hikes, hiked many places worldwide, guided for Nootka Island and participated in trying to save many precious areas.

Meet at Masons Store in Shawnigan Lake 9:20am/Island Savings Centre 9am for car pooling.
