Tour 2) Delta’s Bog Reserve

  Sept 13th Sunday 2-4pm
  The Delta Nature Reserve trails begin at Planet Ice which is in Delta, under the Alex Fraser Bridge at 10388 Nordel Court
  Meet in the parking lot at the East end of the arena for a walk into the only accessible part of Burns Bog. The trail is boardwalk, gravel, and mulch.
  This day also marks 2009 Sustainable House Day 
Tour 3) Lulu Island Bog Tour 

  September 20th Sunday 2-5pm
  Richmond Nature Park is located at 11851 Westminster Highway
  Meet in the parking lot for a tour through the Nature Park, then deep inside the largely unseen boglands that leads us to the Garden City Lands. This is the longest tour to date and will require minor bushwacking skills, boots, rain gear, water, and places to put garbage that we find.
  This day marks the 2009 National Neighbourhood Day and the ‘Clean up the World Weekend’ so be prepared to give back to our boglands.
