Earth day beckons, so why not take a wander through the rich, diverse ecosystems of some of Vancouver’s beautiful (and bountiful) bogs.
Unique ecosystem located in Pacific Spirit Regional Park near UBC. Walking paths include a 300-metre boardwalk through the restored bog, complete with interpretive signage.
A hidden jewel in the heart of busy Richmond. Beautiful nature pathways meander through a peat bog and paper birch forest.
Last remaining bog of its kind, located in Delta. Referred to as the ‘lungs of the Lower Mainland’ due to the bog’s size and influence on the local climate.
Lynn Canyon Ecology Centre
Interpretive centre on the history and ecology of Lynn Canyon park. The Centre highlights the human, animal and natural history of this popular north shore park.
Stanley Park Nature House
The only ecology centre in Vancouver, located in Stanley Park. Located in Lost Lagoon, with free admission and monthly education programs.
