Sea to Sky Retreat Centre

Wild Red Huckleberries


Sea to Sky Retreat was designed consciously to be in balance with the supporting natural resources. The path of sustaining balance is laid out in a  Sustainability Plan 海天闭关中心的可持续发展生活 which is re-statused on Earth Day of each year.

Sea to Sky Retreat 的设计理念旨在维护自然资源的平衡。此宗旨在“海天闭关中心可持续发展生活”计划书中有陈述,该计划每年在地球日得以更新

In caring for the grounds and the surrounding forest of the retreat centre, the SSRC volunteer team is guided by the SSRC Forest Management Plan


To enhance the environmental appreciation of those visiting the centre, an interpretative trail has been developed to mark some of the trees, plants, and wildlife habitats within the forest and lakeside ecosystems. Brief descriptions are provided in an interpretative trail guide. A collection of photos of some of the co-habitants in retreat centre surroundings can be seen below.
