Your Community Association is busy planning with the Friends of Uplands Park for our Oak Bay Earth Day Celebration on Friday, April 22nd! Earth Day 2011 Poster

For our part, the CAOB is leading a bike ride from UVic to Cattle Point via a route we like to call The Educational Corridor. The route starts from our University, passes Camosun College, Carnarvon Park (Preschool/Daycare), Oak Bay High School, SMU Jr. School, and Glenlyon Norfolk School, and lands us at Cattle Point where we’ll finish up with a picnic with the Friends of Uplands Park.
