Go with the tide and enjoy more than endless sand, sun and sea at Boundary Bay Regional Park. Immerse yourself in a west coast treasure that is home to an incredible variety of creatures, each uniquely adapted to living in this beautiful yet challenging environment.
This experiential workshop will get your feet wet (literally) and your head full of ideas to explore the shore with curiosity, wonder and respect. Regional park interpreters will help you use this inspiring outdoor classroom to connect students with nature. You'll learn activities and games to heighten participants' sensory awareness, focus learning and help them engage with nature at the seashore.
Please bring warm and waterproof layers as it is often windy at the beach and the excursion will run rain or shine. Wear rubber boots or shoes you can get dirty as we will be exploring the beach and walking on the mud flats.
