Directions to the site:  For a pictorial map to the site, email me at:  ac.oohay@eyksanirtak and ask for map.

Take the Port Alberni exit off the New Island Highway and stay on Hwy 4 (the Alberni Highway) until you reach Port Alberni.  Keep to the right.  When you come to the first set of lights turn right onto Cherry Creek Rd.  Turn left onto Cowley Rd (opposite the school) and follow it to where it turns into Best Rd. Keep going along it until you hit Kitsuksis St. where you turn right.  The next road on the left is Kingston Rd.  Go straight down Kingston and at the end you hit the private road onto the site.  Please drive slowly as there are dogs, kids potholes and a lot of dust along this road. Signs will be posted.
