Lily Point Walk Benefit - August 22, 2010

Published on Mon, Jul 19, 2010
Read More PR Conservation Society

Come spend the day and walk with us through Chelhtenem an ancestral power spot at the center of the Salish Sea.  As the last warm summer month lingers, experience and explore the bluffs and beaches where eagles fly, whales swim and native tribes gathered and celebrated over 9,000 years of history.

Point Roberts Conservation Society is hosting 2 walks through Lily Point Marine Reserve on August 22, 2010, at 10:30am.   Our guides will walk and teach the wonders and importance of the forest and intertidal areas.  Chelhtenem, translated “hang salmon for drying” is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Biologist Sheila Byer’s specialty is marine invertebrates.  A member of the marine biology committee at Nature Vancouver, Sheila’s more than 30 photographs adorn the waterproof Intertidal Pamphlet that will be given out as a gift from PRCS.  The sand bar pools are 80 degrees in August and this is a 2.25 mile walk.

Craig Jacks is our resident naturalist and will guide the forest walk.  He is versed in First Nation ethnological use of trees and plants for healing and construction.  He will discuss the importance of  “old growth trees” and the need to preserve them.  Craig will provide a descriptive handout covering the plants and trees he discusses. As the Forest walk ends there will then be a choice to continue down to the beach and join with the rest of the group on our way to Maple Beach.

Since 1993, Point Roberts Conservation Society has been community-based conservation at its best.  We represent the conscious land use values of our community and resist irresponsible development.  We have been instrumental in providing guidance to Whatcom Land Trust and The Nature Conservancy in their decisions on purchasing land now known as Lily Point Marine Reserve.   Our organization’s work is solely supported by generous donations from nature loving Canadians and Americans.

Join our guided walks or roam on your own.  Meet up at the end of APA road. Remember to bring water, a hat, and a snack.  Our walk will start promptly at 11:00 so arrive early to register.

Stop the KRPI AM Radio Towers

The proposed Radio Tower site is not consistent with the Point Roberts Character Plan and it is only 330 meters (1,080 feet) from the border.

PRCS Benefit Walk in Pictures

Although the weather started out cloudy with drizzles, The Point Roberts Conservation Society Benefit Walk turn out to be a beautiful day.

History of the Point Roberts Conservation Society

In 1988, a small group of concerned and dedicated neighbors, led by Larry and Aileen Crosetti, banded together to fight the proposed commercial development of Lily Point by Welsh Development Inc. The plan was to develop 132 acres of the former Alaska Packers Association (APA) property to create “The Resort at Lily Point,” consisting of a 72 room hotel, 18 hole golf course, three story 94 unit condominium, and 47 single family residential lots.

Anne Murray's letter to the Whatcom County Hearing Examiner

I am totally opposed to a 103 home housing development on Lily Point, Point Roberts. How the protection of this highly significant area in the Boundary Bay watershed can now be threatened by housing developments is extraordinary.
