Take a hike with the CRD

CRD Regional Parks staff hosting hikes in East Sooke

Have you ever seen turkey vultures “kettling?”

CRD Regional Parks and the Victoria Natural History Society will host the annual migration event complete with live raptor demonstrations and activities at Aylard Farm on Saturday (Sept. 26), from 1 to 3 p.m.

Experts with spotting scopes will be at the viewpoint above Beechey Head. The hike up to the viewpoint requires sturdy footwear and a 20–minute trek up a steep and rocky trail. Bring binoculars, water and a lunch.

Drop in anytime between 12 and 3pm at the Aylard Farm parking lot off Becher Bay Road. Please leave your pets at home.

Meantime, CRD naturalists lead a scenic hike on the Cedar Grove Trail at Roche Cove Regional Park on Thursday (Sept. 24), from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

There is no fee for this program but you must pre-register as space is limited.

For more information, please contact CRD Regional Parks at 250-478-3344 or online atcrd.bc.ca/parks-events.
