Event Information

Thetis Lake Regional Park (View Royal)

From the top to the bottom, each layer of the forest offers food and shelter for a variety of wildlife. To learn more about this unique ecosystem, we invite you to follow along on this self-guided walk. Bring your smart phone and snap photos if you'd like to participate in the City Nature Challenge by contributing to recording the plants and animals in our region. Or leave your phone at home and enjoy the walk without it.

Meeting place: Drop by anytime between 10am and 1pm. The walk begins at the information kiosk at Main Beach.

Trail Description: Approximately 300m on compact gravel and soil surfaces with occasional slight inclines and possible roots. The main beach has accessible toilets and grassy picnic area. 

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.
