Rediscovering the Lake of the Seven Hills

Sunday 13 March

Come on an exploration to find the site of ACC-VI’s first Island hut from the 1930s in what is now known as Sheilds Lake in the Sooke Hills. This is an early chance to contribute to our 2022 project: ‘Vancouver Island Mountains Now and Then’.

Bring your camera to try some updated photography of the exact area. Can we identify the 7 hills around the lake?

We’ll start our hike at Charters Creek at 9.00 am. (Please note we spring into DST on Saturday night, so this is 8.00 am ‘old time’.)
