Walkshop: Mystery on the Trails: Events with Impact LIMITED
Feedback form is now closed.
Limited Capacity seats available

As nature lovers and advocates, it is a dream to hear the words “this is better than a video game!” said at an outdoor event. This happened to us at Metro Vancouver Regional Parks… and it can happen for you too! We’ve discovered that trail-based, station style family events make spending time in nature fun, accessible and creates lasting impacts. This walkshop will use our Critter Capers event series as example of how this style of event works.

Now is your chance become the detective, solve the mystery, and experience Critter Capers through the eyes of a visitor. Learn from our trials and triumphs and discuss how you can use a similar style of events to connect families with nature.

Max Capacity: 40
