  3. Outing

    We will take a tour of the Coquitlam Watershed.  I was able to secure the 0900am-1230pm tour spot. 

    **UPDATE** I was not able to secure seats on the bus for the group.  Each member planning on attending this tour must go to the Metro Vancouver website and create an account and then purchase a free seat on the bus.  The link is below: 

    http://www.metrovancouver.org/events/watershed-tours/Pages/default.aspx

    Creating an account and purchasing your free ticket is time sensitive, so please do NOT wait until the last minute to secure your seat.  Once you have confirmation, please email outings@nwphoto.org and let me know you are coming so I know to expect you.

    Please assemble in the parking lot at the corner of Westwood and Lincoln at 0830.  There is no washroom at the meeting spot.

     


    Details:

    Towering old growth trees, a historic water intake tower, the dam and breathtaking views of our largest reservoir are sure to inspire awe on this tour of the Coquitlam Watershed. After a visit to 4-5 locations, you’ll have a whole new appreciation for these protected lands and the source of your tap water. Through short presentations, you’ll learn about the history of the region’s water supply, water quality, treatment, how it gets to your home and the role of a healthy ecosystem in maintaining exceptional water quality.

    Please be aware that this tour includes a significant amount of driving on gravel roads and some short walks on uneven ground.  


    Logistics:

    The meeting spot is located at 3045 Lincoln Avenue. 

    Anyone parking at the parking lot, be advised that the parking fees are $0.75  per hour.

    Transit Users: Board an eastbound "Expo Line to Production Way-University" train by no later than 0745am.  The train departs NWS at 0750am.  Exit the train at Lougheed Town Centre Station (Platform 2) and transfer to a Millenium Line train (Platform 1) towards LaFarge Lake-Douglas.  Exit the train at Lincoln Station and walk south to the corner of Pinetree Way and Lincoln.  Cross the street walking east and assemble in the parking lot at Lincoln Avenue and Westwood Street (behind Henderson Place Mall).  A map is attached under the "Attachments" tab for more information.

    Please meet by the bus at least 10 minutes before the tour's start time (0845 to be safe).  There is no washroom at the meeting spot.  Dress for mountain weather and bring extra water (in a refillable container).
