April 29, 2019: Taking Root

The snow beginning to melt marks the changing of the seasons, and kicks off the perfect time to frolic through the forest amongst the newly rooted plants shooting through the soil! Youth will embark on adventures through the forest learning about all the various tree species and the history of these lands. This camp will be an interactive environment to blend the perfect mix of learning and adventurous play!

May 21, 2019: Forest in Full Bloom

Those winter showers bring out the most beautiful spring flowers and fun is in full bloom here at the forest! Come explore with us, learn about all the local native plant species while participating in fun nature based games. Youth spring into blossom season where they can put their plant identification skills to the test and learn about pollination.

September 23, 2019: Magnificent Migrations

Look up to the skies and watch as tens of thousands of birds take flight along the Pacific Flyway that stretches some 15,000 kilometers from Alaska to Patagonia crossing right over the Lower Mainland! Learn all about the marvelous birds that journey thousands of kilometers to breed and feed! Youth will gain bird identification skills, play educational games, and gain a deeper understanding of the importance of protected areas for migratory birds!

October 25, 2019: Spawning Season

From the end of summer to early winter, the coast of B.C. becomes the gateway for spawning salmon as they return from their time at sea! Here in the research forest, we watch as our local fish species spawn in nearby streams. Come join us on a day outside the classroom to observe the early stages of the fish life cycle. Youth will explore these spectacular spawning streams, learn about the life stages of local fish, and gain a greater understanding of the role fish species play in the forest!

November 8, 2019: Geological Expeditions

Grab your pickaxe and shovels and join us for a day of geological exploration. Take a closer look at what lies beneath the Earth’s surface in the UBC research forest!
