The Strathcona Wilderness Institute is offering more exciting nature walks and hikes.

On Saturday, July 23, the Comox Valley Naturalists will be meeting at 9:30 a.m. at the Wilderness Centre by Raven Lodge to walk up to Lady Lake. The approximately 10km round trip will offer plenty of opportunity to enjoy the scenery and examine the ecosystems of subalpine lakes.

On Sunday, July 24, meet at the Wilderness Centre at 10 a.m. for a two-three hour walk around Paradise Meadows guided by forester Fred Newhouse.

Fred will identify the trees commonly found in the subalpine areas of Strathcona Park. For all walks, suggested donation for attendance is $5-$10. Contact strathconawilderness@gmail.com to register.
