Thetis Island Nature Conservancy is seeking volunteers to assist in our programming this summer! Volunteers will assist in delivery of planned activities as well as staffing the Nature House during open hours. Volunteers are invited to join us on June 30th at 1:30pm at the Nature House at The Portal (former Camp Columbia) for introductions and orientation.

We are still on the lookout for donations or to borrow any posters, displays, or other odds and ends that would be fitting for the Nature House! Thanks again to all volunteers and to those who have already donated to the Nature House!

If you have any questions, would like more info, or to volunteer in any capacity this summer feel free to contact Danny at danny@cowichanlandtrust.ca , and don’t forget about our grand opening July 1 & 2!

We need a minimum of 6 people and a maximum of 25. The course will cover electronic theory and will include some practice exams.  I know some of our ham radio people might come for a refresher so please contact Mary or Petra by email to reserve a spot.

This is a rare and inexpensive opportunity so if you are interested, don't miss it!

Pickleball, anyone?

Pickleball is an outdoor racquet sport that combines elements of badminton, tennis and table tennis. It is a fun activity that shouldn't be too difficult to learn or play. A pickleball court has been set up on the tennis courts at the community centre and the equipment has been purchased... so get ready to play.

If you're interested, come to the community centre tennis court on Monday, June 19 at 10:00am. Please wear running shoes and comfortable clothing for play. If you can't attend but would like to learn to play pickleball or would like more information please contact Bev Greene at 250-246-3895.

Curiosity is the lust of the mind. -Thomas Hobbes, philosopher

Busy Ferry Change for Today

Please note that there is a last minute change to what is listed on the Busy Ferry Schedule.  Capernwray had one  group leaving on the 10:50am and the other on the 1:20... but now both groups, a total of 123, will be leaving Thetis Island on the 1:20.  

They apologize for this change and the inconvenience this may cause.  As they said: "We try our best to have all the details down and as perfect as we can and sometimes they seem to be out of our control.  I hope you understand."

Offshore Anchorages

To Thetis Island Residents,

When MP Alistair MacGregor held an open house on Thetis Island on May 24, 2017, by far the most common concern of those in attendance was the increased use of offshore anchorages by large shipping vessels. This is an increasing concern of other coastal communities in the riding as well – especially Cowichan Bay and Arbutus Ridge.  

Alistair has written a letter to the Minister of Transportation and asked me to share it with you. We will circulate any response we get and look forward to continuing to work for you and your concerns.  Click here to view. 

Sincerely,

Seamus Wolfe, Community Outreach Coordinator

Office of Alistair MacGregor, MP
