Grab a burger and beer for the Nature Centre

The Cowichan Estuary Nature Centre is hoping for generosity to warm up winter as they throw a fundraiser Sunday, Feb. 16.

The Cowichan Bay Marine Pub is hosting the burger and beer event, which will also feature Celtic band Jane’s Way and a silent auction.

The centre opened in April 2012. It is volunteer-run and donor-supported.

“In the years since we opened, the local community has responded enthusiastically,” the centre said. “With the help of energetic local volunteers, we are able to offer a window into the wonders of the estuary, providing hands-on learning for the more than 8,000 visitors who have come through our doors in 2013.”

Tickets are $20. You can get them at the centre, 1845 Cowichan Bay Rd., Cowichan Land Trust, #6-55 Station St., Duncan and Volume One Bookstore, 149 Kenneth St., Duncan.
