Broom Removal Event for the Mayne Island Conservancy

The next scheduled broom pull is in January 2014. We'll meet in the parking area below the trail access on Henderson Hill (the end of Beechwood Drive) at 2:00 pm and finish at 4:00 pm on Frday the 10th. As usual tools will be provided but bring gloves and dress for the day; sturdy footwear is important. This is a great opportunity to meet new people while getting some fresh air!

Mayne Island Conservancy's Salon Movie Night

Chasing Ice

A documentary by acclaimed National Geographic photographer James Balog. (75 minutes) Balog was once a skeptic about climate change. But through his Extreme Ice Survey, he discovers undeniable evidence of our changing planet. In Chasing Ice, Balog deploys revolutionary time-lapse cameras to capture a multi-year record of the world's changing glaciers.

The Mayne Island Conservancy Society shows important documentaries on conservation themes at its Mary Jeffery Resource Room, 478 Village Bay Road.

The Gulf Islands Unite around Roller Derby

Have you been hearing more about Roller Derby lately? No, this is not your grandma's derby, which was more akin to WWE Wrastlin'.

If so, it's probably because the sport is taking the world by storm, from the gritty back alleys of the urban jungle, and now evidently, to the idyllic and picturesque hills in the sea ecology of the Gulf Islands.
