Have you paddled Cowichan Bay in the moonlight? Perhaps you’ve mountain biked Maple Syrup, tubed the Cowichan River or been on a wine tour. If you’ve visited our region, we’d love to know what you feel were the best experiences. There’s no deadline and you can be a visitor from far away or a local resident--we just want to know your most unique and enjoyable experience. Of course, if you feel we’ve missed the boat somewhere or there’s an experience you’d like to nominate, we’d like to hear about that too.
