Picnic this weekend at the Cape

The weather has been perfect – let’s get out and enjoy it at Cape Roger Curtis. Saturday may be sunny and warm still. Let’s enjoy the Cape Roger Curtis tidal pools at Lighthouse Beach and the smooth stones and (warmer?) waters at Pebbly Beach. Low tide is just after 1p. Bring kids, guitars, sunscreen and positive energy to enjoy these wonderful public beaches in their natural state. (If the weather turns, a shore hike between the Lighthouse and beach is worth doing.)

While there, we can explore the pristine rocky flats and rich tide pools and enjoy the stunning scenery and company of neighbours who care about this special place. Over 500 people have signed a petition urging Council to take action to stop the docks. If you haven’t seen it for yourself, come witness the sites of the first two private docks that are planned to be built on the public shoreline. Bowen Council can stop these docks – it’s not too late!

We have established an account at Bowen’s First Credit Union to accept donations to help fund the campaign to Stop the Docks at Cape Roger Curtis. Every contribution helps – from $2 to $200 or more. You can contribute at the branch, or send a cheque to: Stop the Docks Campaign, c/o Suite 206, 566 Artisan Lane, Bowen Island, BC V0N 1G2.

The funds will be dispersed only for expenses directly related to stopping construction of the docks at Cape Roger Curtis (any unused funds will be donated to a Bowen Island non-profit at the conclusion of the Stop the Docks Campaign). For those who wish to make a tax deductible contribution, please contact me.

Stop the Docks petitions are out at The Office @ Artisan Square, Snug Cafe, Ruddy Potato, Kayak Shop and are now walking the streets too. Putting your name on the petition speaks loudly to our elected officials. Also, if you want to help out, volunteers are needed and welcome.

If you have questions, want more information or can help out, please get in touch. See you Saturday at the Cape?
