Did you catch sight of the recent herring spawn in Vancouver Island’s coastal waters? The spawn is a sure-fire sign of the changing of seasons and a sight for sore eyes after a few colder, wetter months in the Clayoquot Biosphere Region. The frenzy of life occurring below the water’s surface appears to be mirrored on land amongst the residents and organizations of the region. There is so much to look forward to this spring on the west coast! Made more feasible by easing restrictions, several new and returning courses and events have been announced for the coming weeks. We can’t wait!
