Head down to Cowichan Bay for Low Tide Day fun

Mark your calendars for Saturday, May 16 and join the fun at International Low Tide Day.

It starts at 9:30 a.m. Hecate park for a community beach cleanup and at Kil-Pah-Las Beach (beyond the Oceanfront Suites) for a critter count and beach seine.

Then at noon meet at the Cowichan Estuary Nature Centre for food, music and fun, organizers said.

Low Tide Day 2015 is a joint effort of the Cowichan Bay Improvement Association, the Cowichan Land Trust, and the Cowichan Valley Naturalist Society; with assistance from the Cowichan Valley Regional District, Cowichan Tribes, and many local businesses, individuals, and organizations.
