Beach Seine at the Englishman River Estuary - Brant Wildlife FestivalBeach Seine at the Englishman River Estuary - Brant Wildlife Festival

Join the Mid Vancouver Island Habitat Enhancement Society to carefully collect fish and invertebrates in a net along the Englishman River Estuary, and then transfer them to viewing tubs to catalogue before returning them to the water.

The estuary is owned and managed by The Nature Trust of BC, and this beach seine is part of monitoring to check the health of the area.

Biologist Dave Clough will be the leader. If you have experience doing a beach seine and would like to help with the net, wear chest waders and a personal floatation device. Otherwise, wear rubber boots so you can help along the shore. Meet at the gate to the Englishman River Estuary at the parking lot at the end of Shelly Road in Parksville.

Pre-register for this free event by e-mailing Robin Rivers at rrivers@naturetrust.bc.ca or calling toll free 1-866-288-7878.
