Avatar Grove Hike and Boardwalk Fundraiser Sunday Oct. 20th
Ancient Forest Alliance, October 15, 2013
Join Ancient Forest Alliance organizers Ken Wu and TJ Watt on Sunday, Oct. 20th for a fantastic forest hike to learn about old-growth forest ecology, see the progress of the boardwalk so far, and find out how you can help support the completion of this important project!
If you are planning on taking part, PLEASE carefully read all the info below!
• TIME & PLACE: Meet Sunday, Oct 20th at 1:30 pm in Port Renfrew at the Coastal Kitchen Cafe after which time we’ll drive in a convoy to the Avatar Grove. We will hike from 2:30-4:30pm
Funds from this hike will go towards expanding the boardwalk project in the Avatar Grove! Construction has already begun but more work is still needed in many areas! A boardwalk is essential to help protect the forests' ecological integrity and enhance visitor safety and access. For $100 you can sponsor a 1 metre section of the trail.
