Lost Lake BioBlitz, Sunday, July 7, 8:45 am start for part or whole day
This is a follow-up to the discussion at the AGM about the Beaverly Community Association’s proposal to manage the Lost Lake area as an Interpretive Forest. PGNC members proposed holding a BioBlitz to become familiar with the Lost Lake area and understand its potential – this is it!
Whatever your naturalist interests — insects, wildflowers, birds, fish, trees, fungi, bats, amphibians, mammals, whatever — please head out and help with creation of an inventory.
Meet at the Spruceland Shopping Centre under the large sign as per normal, and if you intend to stay for the whole day, bring a lunch. Identification books for your area of interest could also come in handy. (If you know the way, you could instead meet at 9:00 am at 14305 Westbe Road.)
Some members asked for any information on caving. There’s now a uTube movie of the local caving club’s preliminary visit to the remote Taku region, in a quest to find Canada’s deepest cave. A follow-up two-week fly-in trip is to take place in August. See http://youtu.be/b0Tp6mHzwx0
