Conservation efforts at Belcarra

SKABC Conservation volunteers braved the rain yet again, this time at Belcarra Regional Park! Our focus was on removing invasive English ivy and holly plants from Admiralty Point. A significant area was cleared, many impressive roots pulled out, and lots of laughs were had! We even snuck in a nice paddle around Indian Arm on the way back. Thank you to all who showed up and to Vancouver Regional Parks for facilitating this event. We will be at it again on October 20th at Widgeon Creek.

Big Brothers / Big Sisters Paddle at Deep Cove June 15

SKABC hosted 12 kids and their BB/BS partner. The volunteers all arrived at Deep Cove at 0700h to get everything set up, kayaks picked up. Our day did not end until about 6:00/ 6:30 after we packed up and cars loaded. It was a great day. Organizer Calvin Sam sends a big THANK YOU to the volunteers that made this happen: Mark, Ellen, Kirsten, Clark, Maureen, and Karin. Thank you to the Raven Pub and Deep Cove Kayak for the pizza and kayaks.
