Winter 2020 Updates!
Dear Friends, With the latest updates from Bonnie Henry, we will still not be able to offer in person events at the park this month, but we have an exciting virtual event on December 19th that families can safely enjoy, and we are also starting a nature sketch club! Please check out our Events page and our News page for more information. You are invited to get involved!
For the virtual reality event, Ahlam Bavi from UBC, will show participants 3D animals that she designed with her team, and she will demonstrate the step by step process showing how virtual reality works. You will be able to download digital animations of four species of animals found in Woodhaven, including mule deer and swallowtail butterfly. With your Smart phone, you’ll be able to activate these animals indoors or outdoors and get up close and personal to the animals as they move around your living room or down the street or in the forest. It is a fun way to interact with neighbourhood critters and with your family as you project these lovely guys wherever you go (peering around your Christmas tree?) RSVP from the events page, and bring your smart phones!
We love to stay connected with our community and we hope to be returning to in-person walks and other activities before too long.

The truth is: the natural world is changing. And we are totally dependent on that world. It provides our food, water and air. It is the most precious thing we have and we need to defend it.
