Education doesn’t always have to take place in a classroom or through online learning. Getting outside and breathing in some fresh air while learning is both fun and great for the whole family and these locations are sure to get young (and old) minds thinking and exploring!
Mom Tip: Enhance your outdoor learning with a tree identification or bird book about natural BC species, so when you come across some vegetation or flying friend you don’t know, you can take the opportunity to identify what you are looking at! Turn that into a game where you count how many Western Red Cedar trees or Black-capped Chickadees that you see on your walk.
During these unprecedented times, ensure you practice social distancing while passing others on the trails. Also note, some facilities (washrooms, inside learning areas, etc.) may not be open during these times, so plan accordingly. Also, some loop trails may be one way only, so please follow the signage in place on all the trails. And like always, pack in what you pack out and have fun!
