This coming weekend promises to be sunny and there are a couple of programs to take advantage of the good weather coming up at the Strathcona Park Wilderness Centre.
On Saturday July 26, a ‘Dog-friendly’ Hike is planned around the Lake Helen Mackenzie Loop. Meet at 10 a.m. at the Centre for this 3-4 hr, 8.5 km hike. Well-socialized dogs on leash are welcome! (dogs are required to be on leash in the entire Forbidden Plateau area) The Centre has a couple of leashes available to borrow, & these were recently needed for visitors that forgot theirs.
On Sunday July 27, join a Plant ID Walk around the boardwalk to view the summer flowers. Meet at 1 p.m. at the Centre for this 2 hr, 2 km outing. Many of the late summer flowers are already blooming, including some that have just bloomed in the past couple of days!
For all SWI activities, dress for the weather, wear proper footwear, bring lunch or snacks, water, bug spray and sun protection. All SWI activities are by donation, $5-10 suggested. For more information contact coordinator(at)strathconapark(dot)org
