Join us on Sunday, September 5, 10:30 am – 12:30 pm, for a fascinating hands-on low tide exploration of Manson’s Lagoon with marine biologist Deb Cowper and Jane Newman from Cortes Island Museum.
Come search for marine life, learn about shellfish as a food source, hear about the threats to Manson's spit and the marine environment in general.
Where to meet: Meet in Mansons Landing Provincial Park parking lot. Please be prompt as this activity is dependent on the tide.
What to wear: This activity will include walking on wet and uneven ground with sharp shells and requires suitable footwear such as gumboots (best option) or water shoes. NO BARE FEET!
What to bring: You may like to bring a walking stick – oysters & gravel are uneven to walk on and water currents may be challenging.
A hat, sunscreen and a drink are also advisable.
NO DOGS – please leave your dog at home.
Payment: Event is free, donations $10–$30 gratefully appreciated.
Register: To register call the Museum at 250-935-6340 or email cimastwincomm.ca before noon, Friday, Sept. 3.
This event is sponsored by Cortes Island Museum and Friends of Cortes Island.
