MABRRI barbecue at Rathtrevor

Includes games, snacks and lunch

Locals are invited to join Vancouver Island University’s Mount Arrowsmith Biosphere Region Research Institute team in celebrating its third anniversary.

MABRRI, according to a release, will be hosting a casual and festive community barbecue on Friday, Aug. 11 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at one of the MABR’s Amazing Places: Rathtrevor Beach Provincial Park, Picnic Shelter S-1.

The release states the MABRRI wouldn’t exist without the generous support of the Mount Arrowsmith Biosphere Region’s community, so they would like to share their appreciation with all of the residents in “a place that is dear to us all.”

MABRRI will be providing games, snacks and lunch for all participants.
