Oceans Day Event and Film: Sat Jun 14

Join the Mayne Island Conservancy for a day of learning about the Salish Sea in celebration of World Oceans Day. The Mayne Island event coincides with low tide so that we explore the beach! Displays, aquarium, kids activities and more will take place on Miners Bay dock. We will welcome a special friend from the Georgia Strait Alliance who is black and white, has fins and needs a name!

Activities:
12 pm Displays on Miners Bay Dock (Raincoast, Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society, Georgia Strait Alliance).
12 - 1:30 pm Beach seine on Miners Bay Beach.
1 - 2 pm Plankton tow and microscope on Dock.
1:30 - 3 pm Divers collect organisms for aquarium on Dock.

Film: 7 pm at the Ag Hall.
Do you love sea mammals? How about spectacular nature footage? If so come learn with the Mayne Island Conservancy as we host Raincoast’s Misty MacDuffee for an evening of engaging dialogue and powerful film. The film, Groundswell, is a small film about making a big stand. Word-class surfers surf the gnarly waves of the Great Bear Rainforest following the proposed route of the Enbridge pipeline. The presentation will focus on marine mammals of our very own Salish Sea. Door prizes.
