Join the club executive

Take your involvement with the SKABC community to the next level by joining the club executive. Update: specifically volunteers are needed for website development and to send out course surveys. There are also opportunities to assist in other roles. Job descriptions are here. The list of officers and positions for this past year is on the Contact page.

The executive meets about 10 times a year in the evening mid-month -- it's a lot of fun with refreshments provided.

The Annual General Meeting is in November so now's the time to let us know if you're interested. Email Chantal and Susan at nominationcommittee@skabc.org to discuss what opportunities fit your interests, experience and availability.

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.
