Cowichan Weekend Foray 2021

Save the date!
Lake Cowichan Foray

October 22 – 24, 2021

The Lake Cowichan Foray has been an annual highlight for many SVIMS members. The Lake Cowichan Research Station has been reserved for our exclusive use and SVIMS is finalizing the plans for this fun and informative event.  We will be booking the Mycology experts who will lead you through the forests, helping you in the identification of the many species of Fungi you can find at this wonderful location.

SVIMS has been monitoring the current health situation and anticipates the event will proceed under certain guidelines and restrictions. This is a “members only” event.  There maybe some limitations on the number of participants as well, due to Covid protocols. This event fills up fast! So if you are not a member please consider joining.

Further details including accommodations, day participation, registration forms, fees etc. will be released soon.

If you want to be kept up to date on the latest developments, please contact Denise at svims.mal2@gmail.com  and request being added to a mailing list specifically for this event. We will be posting periodic major updates to our main webpage.

We look forward to seeing you there!
