Dr. Joyce Clearihue was hiking with a group from the Victoria Natural History Society in the Charters Creek area on Sunday, Sept. 23.

It was the first time she saw the plaque recognizing her generous donation of 45.2 hectares to the Sea to Sea Regional Park Reserve.

She eagerly posed beside the recently installed plaque on the trestle above the Charters River Salmon Interpretive Centre.

The VNHS group hiked around the Charters River property with Rosemary Jorna of the Juan de Fuca Community Trails Society and had a guided tour in the interpretive centre with Elida Peers.

The VNHS maintains a rare bird hotline (250) 704-2555 to report rare or interesting sightings of birds within the Greater Victoria region.
