On February 3rd, weather permitting, your team will help census one of three drainages: Mink Creek, Rapid Creek and Toponce Creek near Lava Hot Springs. Each creek has its own distinct features which when combined with active beaver colonies will provide you with a once-in-a-lifetime experience (of course, we hope you come back year after year!) After viewing the sites, please select the stream that you would like to census.
The BC 2017 training will be January 27th, 2017 at the Mink Creek Pavilion and mandatory for all participants WHO HAVE NOT PREVIOUSLY BEEN TRAINED. At 10:00 AM , register and get tips from experts on outdoor preparedness and other topics. Then determine your ability to snowshoe an easy, moderate, or difficult route . We’ll look at active vs. inactive systems and biological evidence. If you have not been to the training more recently than 5 years, we recommend that you re-train. Please sign up for training!
After you have completed training, select one of three census zones. Each zone is comprised of three challenge levels.
All teams must report to their base camp by 4:00PM Saturday!
Expect to see wildlife on each zone type! As always, please keep updated on the current weather!
