Strathcona Wilderness Institute invites the public to celebrate B.C. Parks Day on Saturday, July 19.
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 Mount 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 B.C.’s first provincial park and the largest on Vancouver Island.
On Saturday, July 19 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 guided hike to Croteau Lake leaving at 9 a.m. This six-hour, 13-kilometre outing may include an extension to a ridge lookout, or a swim in the lake, depending on conditions.
Pre-register at firstname.lastname@example.org.
B.C. Parks Day is an everyone welcome event. Please dress for the weather; wear proper footwear, bring lunch or snacks, water, bug spray and sun protection.
The Strathcona Wilderness Institute runs ongoing programs and is always thankful for the public’s support.
