Hornby Island, BC
The Tribune Bay Outdoor Education Centre’s team is in need of a helping hand to renovate and restore a sewage wetland treatment area. This project will allow them to maintain a cleaner environment for staff, guests and the public visiting the provincial park. To do so, volunteers will cut back invasive species and will plant native ones. This area will then be used to raise awareness and serve as an educational tool.

Nicknamed “Little Hawaii”, Hornby Island is located between Vancouver Island and the mainland, so a ferry is needed to access it. Almost 1,000 residents, including many artists, have fallen in love with its fine sand beaches and luxuriant forests. The project will take place in the Tribune Bay region, one of the warmest salt water swimming areas in the province.
