Join the Bowen Island Nature Club and the Bowen Conservancy on Sunday, May 15 for a family outing to discover all about Bowen Island's largest watershed.

The Grafton Lake watershed supplies drinking water to much of the island's residents. The Nature Club and Conservancy are sponsoring this free outing as part of the celebration of BC's Drinking Water Week. Similar to geocaching or letterboxing, the Grafton Lake Watershed Quest is one of several Bowen Island Quests where participants are given a Quest map and instructions where they have to read and solve clues that ultimately will lead them to a "treasure" box.

Volunteers will be on hand to assist Questers to find their way from the headwaters of Grafton Lake at Quarry Park to Buchanan Park and then on to Grafton Lake itself. Meet at Quarry Park between 1 and 2:30 p.m. The Quest itself will take between one to two hours and participants will need their own transportation between sites. Carpooling can be arranged.
