This hike is not for the faint -hearted! It is an unmaintained trail within the Vargas Island Provincial Park which navigates through a coastal bog ecosystem. Our educators will share knowledge about the stunted shore pines, edible berries, and carnivorous sun-dew plants found along the way!
Upon arrival of your destination, a long white sandy beach directly facing the wide Pacific Ocean awaits. Here, there are certain species of barnacles and seaweeds that only thrive in exposed coastline- not found near the field station. If the tide is right, walk north along the beach to a freshwater lagoon where eagles, osprey, wolf tracks and juvenile salmon are often spotted.
