Event Information

Elk/Beaver Lake Regional Park (Saanich)

On this interactive program, we invite participants to explore the cultural significance of birds and animals through a First Peoples lens. The cultural lessons and values shared through the time-honoured tradition of storytelling will amaze participants. We will discover how First Peoples passed down important teachings from their respective territories to upcoming generations. We begin with a traditional welcome and territory acknowledgement, then share the history and importance of the site to the First Peoples of the area. We will move along the trail and meet some interesting characters who will share their knowledge and wisdom to help us gain an understanding of how they are interconnected with First Peoples.

Meeting place: Meet at the Beaver Lake Picnic Shelter at the Filter Beds parking lot.

Trail Description: 800m turn around; on compact surface;  with slight incline. Accessible washroom available near parking lot.

Please note: We like pets too. However, their presence can be disruptive for some folks. If you plan to attend one of our programs, please leave pets at home. Guide and service animals are, of course, welcome.
