On Sunday July 7 at 10:30 am, explore the ‘Spring Flora & Fauna’ of Paradise Meadows on a Nature Walk with expert naturalist Jocie Ingram. SWI has installed many plant signs around the meadows to help identify the many sub-alpine flowers, and has produced a couple of brochures which will be handy for this program, including the Paradise Meadows Interpretive Nature Walk Guide.

SWI nature talks, walks & hikes continue through the summer – for the full schedule please check the program link above.

For all activities: dress for the weather, wear proper footwear, bring lunch or snacks, water, bug spray and sun protection. No pets please on SWI nature walks & hikes unless otherwise noted. SWI programs are free, although a donation of $5 –10 is appreciated to help with the Institute’s ongoing activities. All SWI programs start at the Wilderness Centre at Paradise Meadows.
