Plant signs were were put in place in the meadows today, in preparation for the Spring Flora & Fauna nature walk tomorrow, guided by Betty Brooks.
The meadows/boardwalk loop is now essentially snow-free, though the Lake Helen Mackenzie loop beyond still has soft, deep snow in several places – check at the Wilderness Centre for maps & notes re the snow patches – thanks to Julian for the detailed report! Good footwear will be needed for the Level 1 Hike tomorrow at 10 am, and hiking poles could come in handy.
Another busy day at the Centre – visitors from the Valley, Campbell River, Port Alberni, Ottawa, France, Switzerland…. One visitor was missing his sunglasses , so if anyone finds anything, let us know! Mount Washington’s Alpine Lodge also has a Lost & Found.
A blue grouse was hooting in the early morning, and a ruby-crowned kinglet was perched on a snag outside the Centre for much of the day, singing his signature song – possibly establishing a breeding territory?
