"What's on" on Market Days

The Conservancy will usually staff a single table dispensing free conservation information and there may be 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. A special feature will be the sale of well started native plants grown in our own plant nursery

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 Priority Ecosystems Project. Rob Underhill, our staff biologist will be available on some weekends but generally our staff will be represented by one or both of our Summer Student employees, Abbie Sherwood and Izaiah Sheerin who will be able to talk about all our activities. Most weekends will see a special presentation on the progress of our Save St. John Point Campaign.

Special Events

Special events during the Market and Sunday "rambles" will be organized for kids & visitors this summer - announcements here! In addition upcoming events will be featured such as our salaam to Oceans Day (June 3), Guided Walks on St. John Point (June 3, July 1, July 29 and August 19th) and "Meteors in the Park" (August 5th)
