We’re Launching a Community Clean Up Day!

We salute our Litter Heroes! Each year we are planning a collaborative effort between our local schools and community groups, to make sure our roadsides, parks and trails get some TLC!

Check out our ROTARY ECOCLUB CLEAN UP CHECKLIST for ideas on how to launch an event like this in your community!

Advocating for Park Land for Shawnigan

On the front page of the January 2022 edition of the Shawnigan Focus newspaper, you can learn more about the letter writing campaign to support the preservation of this land with trails as part of the CVRD’s Old Baldy Community Park.

EcoClub Hike of “Block 228”

On Saturday, February 26th, 2022 we were guided on an epic adventure through this special 350-acre Crown parcel of land, by knowledgeable locals Jennie and Bruce Stevens. In addition to the beautiful old growth trees and views of Salt Spring Island and Old Baldy Mountain, we stopped to rest and take in vivid stories about the work of the Fairy Creek Forest Defenders – deepest thanks to our Guest Speaker (and talented musician!) Hannah Gallacher.
