The latest news from BC Marine Trails sounds pretty darned good. There's a "leave no trace" campsite at Musgrave Point on SaltSpring Island, and the Alert Bay 360 is coming up. Check out the update at BC Marine Trails, or go to their websit at bcmarinetrails.org.
Then there's the latest word from the Georgia Strait Alliance. They have a new program called Save the Salish Sea! You can also check out their website at http://www.georgiastrait.org/ to see what they're up to lately.
But this weekend in Victoria? The happening place on Saturday is Mountain Equipment Co-op's Paddlefest on Willows Beach. From 10:00 am to 4:00 pm Saturday, there'll be boats on the beach and booths on the shore! Take the #2 bus to Willows Beach, or lock up your bike at the extra bike racks... and there'll be some street parking for cars as well.
