The Mid Vancouver Island Habitat Enhancement Society (MVIHES) is putting on their first annual River Run to raise awareness of their society and funds for future projects involving the conservation and restoration of salmon habitats like local watersheds, estuaries and shorelines.
The run will be a five km loop through trails in the park, ending at the Englishman River Hatchery.
Registration is $20, $15 for seniors and students and kids under 14 are free. Those wanting to participate can email firstname.lastname@example.org and pay on Sunday. Meet at the end of Allsbrook Rd. in Parksville by 9:30 a.m. this Sunday, June 12 for the run, which starts at 10 a.m. Prizes are being provided by The Running Room.
