The Wilderness Committee is proud to have been picked by one of Vancouver Island’s most exciting eco-tourism businesses as its Earth Day partner this year!
On Saturday, April 19th, we’ll be out at AdrenaLINE Zipline Adventure Tours near Sooke celebrating Earth Day with our newest publications and campaign updates. Zipline guides have been briefed on our projects and will talk about forest conservation and other issues as guests fly through the canopy!
Experience an exhilarating ride up to 60km/hr as you soar through the forest on eight scenic ziplines, ranging from 150 feet to an unforgettable 1000 feet off the ground.
At the end of the day, AdrenaLINE will generously donate a portion of all proceeds to the Wilderness Committee, so book your zipline tour at www.adrenalinezip.com, or by calling (250) 642-1933!
