BC Marine Trails: Preserving BC coastal access for small craft users.

Cleanups: Caring for our trails

Gerald Island 2019

Gerald Island Provincial Park is a lovely example of the rocky coastal bluff ecosystem, inhabited by bald eagles, seals, sea lions, and numerous other bird and marine species we love. It is easily accessible by small boat from the Nanoose area of Vancouver Island.

Tools, gloves, and eye protection are provided, and we will be camping on the island for three days. Those who would like to help, but prefer just coming for the day, are also welcomed heartily.

Volunteers will be responsible for their own boats, safety gear required by Canadian Coast Guard for small craft, and meals.

Help us co-ordinate a successful event by registering now.
