Please sign up in advance for this free event. Space is limited to 20 participants.

COVID-19 safety protocols will be in place for this walk.

This walk will take place from 9:30–11:30 am on Sunday, June 20, 2021 at Lockhart Beach/Creek Provincial Park.  We will explore the Lockhart Creek trail about 1.5km up the trail and then come back for a 3 km round trip.  This forested trail is an excellent example of temperate interior cedar hemlock forests.
