As a kid, one of the most magical moments at the beach is when you turn over a rock and witness the weird and wonderful creatures below. We invite families to come to the shore for a shared exploration of the intertidal zone! Let’s see courageous crabs, slippery seaweed, and incredible isopods! All ages welcome, children under 12 years old should be supervised by an adult (each participant must be registered). 


Accessibility notes: This program requires moving around uneven tidal rocks, sand and possibly shallow water for up to 2 hours. There is a steep concrete slope leading to the beach, and is not considered wheelchair accessible. If you have any questions about accessibility, please email Anna at publiced@stanleyparkecology.ca       


This program will meet in front of the Stanley Park water park (aka “Fox’s Den”, located near what is commonly known as Lumberman’s Arch). Please arrive 5 minutes early to sign in.   (1) (2) (3) (4)

(4) Cancellation policy – We refund cancellations due to illness to keep everyone healthy, but the number of recent cancellations is impacting our capacity to run these programs.

We gratefully acknowledge that the land on which we gather and help steward is the unceded and traditional territories of the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish) Nation, and Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nation. Since time immemorial, Coast Salish peoples have lived reciprocally with the land, harvesting and cultivating foods and medicines and practicing ceremony. The abundance of these lands and waters, which enables us to live, work, and play here today, is a result of the past and on-going stewardship and advocacy of the Coast Salish peoples.
