CRD Parks programs bring evenings to life

Guided walk explores the world of bats at Elk and Beaver Lake Park

There’s plenty to do at Elk and Beaver Lake Park once evening arrives. At this time of the year, bats begin to rouse from their daytime slumber in search of insects. A guided walk for those eight years of age or older gets started on Friday at 7:30 p.m. and runs until 9. Meet at the grassy area adjacent to the picnic shelter in the Filter Beds parking lot for this free event.

Join a Capital Regional District Parks naturalist for a free evening of games and campfire stories at Island View Park on Saturday from 7 to 8:30 p.m. Bring a beach chair and meet at the campfire ring at the Island View Beach campground off of Homathko Road.

Visit or call 250-478-3344 for more information.

Please remember to leave your pets at home.
