She stripped a soft piece of bark from a fraying cedar trunk to demonstrate how it can be used as fiber for clothing, and detailed how to extract vitamin C from western hemlock needles by steeping them in boiling water.
2016-03-29We are very proud to be in a partnership with the Vancouver Aquarium and share in the opportunity to provide educational, ecological and cultural experiences to our visitors. The Vancouver Aquarium is open 365 days a year.
Our annual A Night At the Longhouse Event has been a smashing success! Back by popular demand, this is a community cultural celebration and performance with an evening of traditional Coast Salish-shíshálh drumming, singing and dancing and traditional storytelling. Also unique was our potluck dinner that included salmon and elk (donated by the shíshálh Nation). We invited our Sunshine Coast friends and visitors to join us and we've had a wonderful time. All proceeds go to Community Soccer – the Sechelt Renegades and Our SD 46 Cultural Dance Group. Please click the Photos tab above to view some photos from the event.

2016-03-15 | By: Candace CampoKayaking is a Team Sport. Some people like to go lone wolf, which is doable, but when on a multi-day trip you can be carrying heavy gear, food and safety equipment and your double fibreglass and or kevlar kayak can weight up to 200 lbs when loaded. Four to even 6 people carrying a loaded kayak is recommended by Talaysay Tours. When you do not have a big team to carry the kayaks, unload your gear at the shoreline and carry the kayaks empty or partially loaded. Your back will love you for the team effort in transporting the kayaks to and from the beach just by preventing a back tweak or serious injury. When you are adventuring in the wilderness your paddle mates are your tribe and you literally have to have each others backs in all aspects. Pun is intended.
