Strathcona Wilderness Institute

Special Visitors Day


Another day of great weather, and slots of  great visitors!  Comox Valley residents brought guests from Japan & Hong Kong; Canadians  living in Mexico and from the North West Territories came for a visit. Naturalist Hans Boerger from Parksville came to look at the flowers; Gary Schaan of the Strathcona Park Public Advisory Committee came to look at the Centre; Peter Rothermel of the Federation of Mountain Clubs of BC and friends came in to refresh after a three-day trek to Mt. George V. However perhaps the most notable visitor today was Ruth Masters – arriving at the Centre at the same time as a young family who just completed the Augerpoint Traverse from west to east, including a night camping at Ruth Masters Lake!

The guided hike to Lake Helen Mackenzie was popular – thanks to guides Mandy & Charley Vaughan for their expertise with birds, plants & fish along the way.
