We are pleased to announce that we will be offering free guided walks to St. John Point over the next few months.
Response to the Save St. John Point campaign has been excellent—particularly from the Mayne Island community. And while some of us are familiar with the beautiful and nearly-wild peninsula, many others have requested a chance to walk the point, see the beauty of its shores and forests, and get to know the precious natural and cultural resource that we are working to conserve forever.
To that end, Mayne Island Conservancy Society has been granted permission from the property’s owners to lead guided walks on Sunday mornings.
Here’s what you need to know:
- Access to the property is through these guided walks only. The land remains privately owned, and as good neighbours we intend to respect the owners’ wishes. In addition, Mayne Island Conservancy has secured a special extension on our insurance to cover group visits within these parameters only.
- Group size is limited. In order to provide a safe and enjoyable experience for all, we are limiting each group to 16 participants. Please RSVP in advance using the links provided below.
- Visits are free of charge; we will be asking for a donation to cover the cost of the bus service.
- There is no parking at St. John Point. Guided walks will meet at the Mayne Island Conservancy Society Office in Miners Bay, and proceed by bus from there.
