Recommendation For Local Guide With Knowledge of Ecology and Off-The-Grid Energy

Hi,

I am interested in setting up a nature retreat on Lasqueti Island on a weekend this summer and I would like to find any recommendations for accommodation for 10-20 people and a local guide on the island who is very knowledgeable about the island's ecology, history and off-the-grid power systems. I would really appreciate any recommendations. You can post here or email me at: kyle [at] diygenius [dot] com

Cheers,

Kyle

Hello Merrick,

I'm also sending this to the email list.

Your Regional Director Notes in last week's Isle & Times say "the large suggested tax increase was a shock."
