The dates for guided tours of the Old Growth Conservancy for 2017 have been announced.
There are 8 places available for each date. The tours take 2.5 to 3 hours.
Much of the tour is off-trail and can include steep terrain, fallen trees and underbrush. Sturdy footwear, long pants and a long-sleeve shirt (for brush and bugs) are recommended. Please bring water, something to eat, insect repellent and, if you like, a hiking pole for stability. A release of liability will be provided and must be signed before the tour. Unfortunately, children under the age of 10 and dogs cannot be accommodated.
If you’re interested, please complete the application form and email it to email@example.com. Please share this with any friends that might be interested.
After an absence of 3 years due to miserable snow conditions, the OGCS is thrilled to announce a snowshoe hike through the Old Growth Conservancy on Sunday, February 19.
This is an excellent opportunity to see some of the better old-growth in the Conservancy without impacting the forest floor. We meet at Hi-View Lookout at 10 AM for car pooling or at 10:30 at Parking Lot #5.
The hike will last 2.5 to 3 hours. Bring some food and a beverage. Water-resistant outerwear over layered winter clothing is recommended, as are sturdy, water-resistant boots. On past hikes, footwear has varied from boots to snowshoes to crampons. Hiking or ski poles are advised.
Mountain Equipment Co-op rents snowshoes for $15/day. Reservations can be made at the North Vancouver store at 604-990-4417
Please let us know if you can join us by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
