Saturna Island Fog Alarm Building

1791, the Spanish schooner Santa Saturnina cut through the Salish Sea and rounded the south east tip of what is now called Saturna Island. They would have been greeted by the sight of a glorious meadow, and perhaps a noisy herd of sea lions...or even some orcas. These days, that meadow, those sea lions and even those orcas remain at Saturna's East Point. East Point is punctuated by a small white building at the top of the hill. The historic Fog Alarm Building and it's also home to a small, community-run interpretive centre.

Take a tour with Margaret after the 7:30 news Saturday.
