Hamilton Wetlands and Forest Tour
April 15 2023
The Wetland itself is 3 km’s long and 1/2 km wide. It sits within 360 ha’s of forest. You’ve probably driven by it a hundred times but not known it’s there! It’s located 5 minutes from Qualicum Beach. Head out Memorial, go under Hwy 19 overpass, and turn right onto Hilliers Rd S. at the bottom of the hill. It’s about 1 km further on your left.
Volunteers from the Friends of French Creek Conservation Society, Ducks Unlimited Oceanside, Arrowsmith Naturalists, Arrowsmith Independent School, and NIWRA will be on hand to provide guided tours of this amazing wetland. Check out the bug bingo and view birds at the dock.
Tours take place between 11am and 3pm, easy walking, dress in layers and don’t wear your good shoes. Please don’t bring dogs on the trail as it’s nesting season.
Did we mention there will be a draw with prizes courtesy of Ducks Unlimited Oceanside?
