He has lived on Salt Spring Island for almost 20 years and is an active member of Salt Spring’s hiking and kayaking clubs, as well as the local park and recreation commission’s Trails Committee.
During the slide show, Kahn will share some of his favourite hikes, reveal some of the best places to see wildflowers in the spring and show some of the most beautiful beaches and shorelines the Gulf Islands have to offer.
