ANNOUNCING A BC MARINE TRAILS’ ‘LEAVE NO TRACE’ AWARENESS WORKSHOP

Do you consider your group’s environmental impact when planning a paddling trip? How to reduce it? How well do you know and practise Leave No Trace principles in the wilderness?

This morning workshop is a ‘no charge’ introduction to Leave no Trace principles as they apply in the BC Marine Trails environment. It is geared towards paddlers who love and respect our BC wilderness and want to help to preserve it.

When: 10.30am – 1pm, March 24, 2017
Where: Beban Park Activity Centre, 2300 Bowen Rd. Nanaimo BC
