Field trip: Island View Beach, Saanichton, November 28th

Where: Island View Beach, Saanichton
When: 9 am to 12 noon(ish)
Difficulty: Easy

Sean is offering to run a field trip on Sunday, November 28th along Island View beach. Participants should meet at the Island View Park parking lot at the end of Island View road.

Island view is a good beach for general beach combing and to look for fossils. On a previous trip a club member found a huge piece of Dallasite – our club stone. On the 28th high tide is at 11:30 in the morning, so we will be rock hunting with a rising tide, but this should present no problems. This beach is an easy walk, suitable for all ages and fitness levels.

Numbers are not limited, but please use this form to sign up if you plan to join the field trip so we will know when everyone has arrived. If your plans change and you no longer plan to join, please contact fieldtrips@vlms.ca to let Sean know.
