Winter is receding at Paradise Meadows, and it is time to start planning summer visits to the Strathcona Provincial Park.
Strathcona Wilderness Institute will be opening the Strathcona Park Wilderness Centre at Paradise Meadows on June 29 for the summer season, with normal operating hours of 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. Summer programmes include Nature Walks, Talks and Hikes with expert naturalists and guides on weekends through July, August and September.
The first guided walk of the season will happen on Saturday June 23. starting at 1 p.m. with a 2.5 hour tour of the Meadows loop to identify subalpine flowers in bloom. The first longer hike will happen on Sunday July 1st at 11 a.m., with a four-hour easy hike around the Battleship Lake/Helen Mackenzie loop.
Both of these offerings will be meeting at the Strathcona Wilderness Centre at Paradise Meadows.

Self-guiding brochures can be obtained at the Centre for the Boardwalk loops in Paradise Meadows, and wheelchairs and the Trailrider are available for those whose mobility is restricted.
The Strathcona Wilderness Institute is a non-profit organization whose mission is to inspire awareness, appreciation and stewardship of the natural world through education and participation.
