Sea to Summit

The Nanaimo and Area Land Trust is having their second annual Sea to Summit Celebration on Saturday, June 13, 2009. This event features two guided hikes, one beginning at 11 am to the summit of Mount Benson and another starting at 1 pm along the Westwood Ridges. Registration for these is $10 adults or $5 for children under ten. In the afternoon everyone will gather at The German Club, 71 Caledonia Avenue (in the Millstone River Valley below Terminal Avenue North and Comox Road, accessible by car off Rosehill Street next to the railway tracks). From 4 pm to 10 pm there will be live music at The German Club, plus an art display depicting the moods of the Mount Benson Watershed sponsored by the Art 10 Gallery. Half of the proceeds from the silent auction of works of art will go to NALT. Beginning at 5 pm there will be a wild salmon barbecue ($6 a plate). For more information call NALT at 250-714-1990.
