Over 50 participants gather at Naturalist Hut on Blackwell Peak to take part in the 2nd Annual Manning Park Conservation Day hosted by Friends of Manning Park held at Blackwell Peak on September 21, 2012. The day was a partnership between by BC Parks (through the Park Enhancement Fund), Princeton Secondary School, Friends of Manning Park and Vermilion Forks Field Naturalists.
The project was called “Blackwall Peak Trail Rehabilitation & Ecosystem- Protection Day” – it was our second annual event which was initiated by Parks 100 last year and was such a success we did it again this year. The Grade Ten science curriculum involves conservation so it is a perfect fit.
