What's on Sale on Market Days

The Conservancy will usually staff a single table dispensing free conservation information and a small number of resale items including maps of Mayne Island, the "Gulf of Georgia" and The Salish Sea, stainless steel water bottles carrying a MICS imprint, as well as such pamphlets as Michael Dunn's Bird Checklist and the Habitat Acquisition Trust's "Gardening with Native Plants." More information about some of these can be found on our Publications page.

During the core summer weekends we will also have a table with a display and information on the Mayne Island Shoreline Care Programs and on the Community Stewardship Project. Rob, Leanna, or Lauren will be available to talk about these actvities. A special feature this year will be the sale of well started native plants grown in our own plant nurseries as part of the stewardship project. See the poster at right for some details.

Special Events

Special events during the Market and Sunday "rambles" will be organised for kids & visitors this summer - announcements here!
