SATURDAY JUNE 18TH: GLENBROOK RAVINE PARK, NEW WEST

Seeking Life

 

Have you ever wondered the names of the plants that grow wild in park? In this month’s River Basin Day, we’re going to learn how to identify plants and animals using the free and easy-to-use Seek app! All you need is a device (phone or tablet) that can run apps and is connected to data, and you can identify almost any plant, animal or fungus you come across! It’s like Pokemon Go, for nature! So joins us on a guided walk as we discover a whole new world growing all around us.

We will walk about 1 km through the park, so please dress appropriately. You are encouraged to bring water, as well. June weather is quite warm!

Registration cost includes admission to the Fraser River Discovery Centre. Pay when you register for this workshop, and the next time you visit the Centre in-person, you will be admitted for free.

COVID-19 Safety protocols are in place, so please register in advance. Click here to register.
