Taking a break while hiking up Mt. Myra.  Not a bad view if you ask me.

The stars over Elk Mountain.  An amazing sight to see with no city lights around.

Hanging out with your friends on a beach with no parents around…mmm yeah that sounds like a good way to spend a summer. Take a look at Strath’s WYLD Nootka trip  for yourself and see if you want to sea kayak, check out some great scenery, hang out with your friends or make new ones. The WYLD Nootka trip is a lot of fun!

Campbell River Museum

Have you ever been a ‘tree planter’?  Do you have any great photographs or stories about tree planting in BC?  The Museum at Campbell River is looking for contributions to use in an exhibit entitled ‘Eating Dirt’, named for the book of the same name by author Charlotte Gill who is the 2012/2013 Haig-Brown Writer in Residence.

Although the concept of silviculture developed as early as 1912 in British Columbia, it was on Vancouver Island that a significant tree planting program was first developed in the 1940s to restore logging areas that were destroyed in the Great Sayward Fire of 1938.  The Museum’s exhibit aims to include a look at the history of tree planting on Vancouver Island, along with an emphasis on current practice in BC.  Please feel free to contact Ken Blackburn at public.programs@crmuseum.ca or call 250-287-3103 to be part of this intriguing contemporary history exhibit.

 

The Museum at Campbell River is holding an Open House on Sunday, February 17th from 1 – 3pm and invites all tree planters and former tree planters to attend and share their stories and images.  Charlotte Gill will be facilitating.

 

Thanks!

2012! A Great year!
