Cowichan Valley Weekend Club

June 25, 2017 @ 1:00 pm PDT

Our next Explorer Day is on Sunday, 6/25, 1-4pm at Kinsol Trestle. See attached poster.

Join biologist Todd Carnahan of the Cowichan Land Trust at the world famous Kinsol trestle over the wild Koksilah river. We’ll explore the resource development history of the landmark and then walk up the river to discover what plants and animals live in the forested gorge.

Our watershed is critical to the health of our people and it is the driver of our industries. We will learn what threatens our waterways and find out how to protect and enhance their functions.

All ages welcome. Short and steep surfaced trail to lower gorge. Rough trail along river. 2-3hrs. Bring water and snacks.

Once you RSVP and space allows, we will let you know the exact meeting location.

Limited space. Priority to current NatureKids members. Please RSVP at

Explorer Day Etiquette:

  • Be prepared to HAVE FUN!
  • Pre-registration with your Club Leader is required for most Explorer Days (Friends are welcome if space permits).
  • Please arrive 5-10 minutes before the scheduled start time to ensure enough time for passport stamping and organization. Starting times are firm, and Leaders cannot wait for late-comers!
  • Please stay with the Leader and let them know if you are leaving early.
  • Children must always be accompanied by an adult guardian, who is responsible for their behaviour. Children consistently disrupting the experience of others may be asked to leave.
  • Bring appropriate weather gear, sunscreen, snacks, water, and other useful tools like binoculars, sketch books, cameras, and magnifying glasses.
