Getting out on the water with kayaks (and friends) is the theme behind Kayak Demo Day on Sunday and on June 18 at Tyee Spit. Admission to the event is by donation which will go to the Greenways Land Trust.

Greenways Land Trust to benefit from Kayak Demo Day

Greenways Land Trust is a local non profit conservation organization that works to enhance recreational and ecological greenways for people and wildlife

Greenways Land Trust is a local non profit conservation organization that works to enhance recreational and ecological greenways for people and wildlife.

The work is accomplished by volunteers who participate in: stewardship, public education, and community events.

Greenways works towards increasing public education of the environment by planning events aimed at getting people outside and informed about what kinds of greenways the City of Campbell River has to offer.

On Sunday, June 5 and Saturday, June 18 at the Tyee Spit, Greenways Land Trust will be the prime beneficiary of Outdoor Addictions kayak demo days, where this service will be offered on a donation basis where all proceeds will benefit Greenways.

Being a strong advocate of healthy living in harmony with the natural environment and sustainable development that embodies those qualities, Greenways members believe that this event will profile the importance of protecting and preserving valued green spaces such as the Campbell River estuary.

The kayak demo days will not only share the recreational activity of kayaking, but also enhance an awareness and appreciation of the accomplished works of organizations such as Greenways Land Trust.

On June 5 and 18 you can support Greenways, and at the same time try out one of the variety of kayaks on display.

On June 11 Greenways Land Trust will be helping the Campbell River estuary by hosting the annual Broom Bash by removing this invasive species along the Myrt Thompson trail.
