Celebrate Parks Day

Strathcona Wilderness Institute invites the public to celebrate BC Park’s Day on Saturday. This event will run from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m. at the Strathcona Wilderness Centre at the Paradise Meadows trailhead in Strathcona Park. The centre is located adjacent to Mt. Washington’s Raven Lodge.

Parks Day is about celebrating and supporting parks and nature, re-engaging with our natural heritage and ensuring that parks are protected for future generations to enjoy. Strathcona Park has a special significance as BC’s first Provincial Park and the largest on Vancouver Island.

On Saturday you can browse information and displays from local organizations and participate in educational activities that will be fun for the whole family. There will also be a six-hour guided hike to Croteau Lake leaving at 9 a.m. Pre-register at coordinator@strathconapark.org

BC Parks Day is an everyone welcome event. For more information please visit http://strathconapark.org
