Join Comox Valley Regional District (CVRD) parks and Active Comox Valley as they present a free guided “Wetland Wonders” nature walk at Seal Bay nature park. Led by biologist Ian Moul, the walk takes place Saturday, May 2 from 10 am to noon and is part of provincial Move For Health Day.
Learn about the plant communities of a second growth forest and the various stages of wetlands, particularly Melda’s Marsh. Kids can take part in an educational ‘what can you see’ scavenger hunt which will help them learn about the various types of tree cones, birds, reptiles and amphibians found in the park.
The event will happen rain or shine and is fun for all ages, however please leave your pets at home. Bring your camera and binoculars for viewing birds and other wildlife. The walk will take an out and back route, stopping at the marsh to learn about its history and inhabitants. Meet at the main parking lot on Bates Road. There will be giveaways, prizes, including a draw for walking poles from Alberni Outpost, as well as healthy snacks.
