NOTE: This walk is designed for families with children between 4-12 years old.
Stanley Park is an oasis for wildlife in the city, and there are amazing opportunities to catch glimpses of their daily lives if you know just where to look.
In honour of World Wildlife Day on March 3rd, take the family for a walk on the wild side in the last days of winter—a great time to see birds and mammals gearing up for spring. Learn to use binoculars, practice the basics of tracking, and get to know the wildlife in Stanley Park, including herons and coyotes. Come see the forest for the habitats that animals call home.
We gratefully acknowledge that the land on which we gather and work is the unceded and unsurrendered territories of the Coast Salish peoples, including the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish) Nation, and Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nation. For thousands of years, Coast Salish people have walked this land and walked with it in a good way, harvesting foods and medicines and made good ceremony here. The abundance that these lands and waters provide us to live, work and play is due to the reciprocal relationships by which Coast Salish people lived and live today.
