Saturday, May 14, 2016,9:30 to noon: Coal Creek Historic Park, No. 1 Japanese Town. Meet at the gravel parking area at the base of the coal hills. The site is accessed off Comox Lake Road, marked by the red “No. 1 Japanese Town Historic Site” sign. For more information contact Kevin McPhedran. This cut has been rescheduled from May 28 due to early blooming.
