Chilliwack Mountain Nature Walk: Saturday August 6th

Learn about the fascinating plants and animals that call Chilliwack Mountain home!

Join us for a Biologist-led nature walk at the little known Hillkeep Regional Park on the top of Chilliwack Mountain. We will explore this scenic park habitat which supports a wide range of species, both common and rare.

We will be meeting 10 am on Saturday, August 6th at the park entrance: turn off Chilliwack Mountain Road on to Grandview Drive, follow Grandview to the top of the hill, then turn right on Hillkeep Place, and meet in the cul-de-sac at the end of this road.

Please wear sturdy walking shoes and bring water and sun-protection or rain gear.
We will be walking rain or shine!

Registration for this free tour is appreciated, but not required.


Toadlet Migration 2016

Thanks to all the help from our volunteers and project supporters the toadlets have safely migrated from their wetland breeding pond to their forest home. There were far fewer toadlets killed on the road this year!













While we did encounter some challenges with our directional fencing and the numbers of toadlets migrating were less this year, we were really happy with their acceptance of the tunnel as a safe way to cross under the road. Yet again we learned some important lessons from the toads this season, and we will use this information to continue to improve the crossing. We are optimistic that we will have an even better fencing solution in place that will help direct the toadlets next year. We also expect the migrating numbers will likely return to a more normal (higher) level in 2017, based on past migration trends.

The local papers had some good coverage of the event:
