How well do you know the trails of Stanley Park? From the edges of the city, to a foggy morning on Beaver Lake, to the owls that sweep the forested trails of the Park - you are bound to find new and touching experiences as you spend more time in nature through each season. Join SPES Educator Anna Bondartchouk in this month’s installment of “Get to Know a Trail”, where we explore the joys of trails across Stanley Park. This month, we wander up Merilees Trail to admire eagles, forest and coastline below.
