Submitted by Jocelyn Green I have been exploring more parks close to home during this period of “lock down”. We are fortunate. There are some amazing places to explore. Playfair has been transformed over the last few years from ugly invasive grass to an incredible area with beautiful native species.

Submitted by Liz Bicknell OCV hikers explored new trails at Mount Work on January 25, led byChris Dalziel.
submitted by Adrien Lamoureux It was a nice break from the rain to enjoy the a sunny (but windy) hike on Mount Finlayson. Six brave hikers did the front, and the majority did the back. We met at the top (including Joy!) and shared a small drink to kick off the new year (thanks to Joy) 🙂
Submitted by Shirley Traviss Five hardy members hiked in Goldstream Park on December 8, 2019. We made a loop to Goldstream Falls and the length of the park to the Railway Trestle. We were rewarded with a magical forest of green with moss hanging from the bushes and trees, many tiny waterfalls, sunlight filtering through, fog coming in and out, and no rain. Shirley
Submitted by Adrien Lamoureux A pleasant day to spend with friends walking from Roche Cove, around Matheson Lake, and up and down Matheson Mountain. Deep lush greens with many leaves on the ground. Thank you to Shirley for leading it.
