Lakes of Victoria, BC – Upcoming book

We’re working on a newer, better book. And we’d like to include your photographs of Victoria’s lakes, and the animals, birds, fish, insects, and plants that call them home.

Out of print for nearly 8 years, the original book is being completely redone.  The new version is due in April 2021, and will feature more lakes and vignettes of local aquatic and riparian species.

If you have high resolution photographs to share for the book, please contact Adam Ungstad at info@secretlakes.ca.
