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

Gerald Island

Note: This clean up was moved a week further to accommodate the weather.

After the hard work of volunteers last year to attack a severe infestation by a non-native species, i.e. English ivy, on Gerald Island, we are looking for help to return again this year, to further our efforts.

We have identified Sept. 17 - 21, for our return trip, to continue the removal of vines and root systems, that have been choking off mature trees, and covering tent site options.

Under the direction of BC Parks West Coast Conservation Officer, we will be adding to the vegetation already removed, which will be burned or removed later this fall.

Please consider helping with this clean up effort close to home. Details of launch site to follow, and as always, travel by boat will be dependent on favourable sea state conditions.

It is possible to come for a shorter time if your calendar is limited. Contact Gene at: gene@bcmarinetrails.org for additional messages.
