Join geocacher forestfauna on a 45min – 1 hr guided nature tour of Victoria Park. Mark’s tour will focus on the various plants and animals that we see around us. How to identify some of the hardwood and softwood trees common to the region. Various wildlife sounds and signs we see and hear. Good (free and/or cheap) apps for the nature lovers. General knowledge and information on the area.
This will be a moderate-level hike on established pathways in the park (but we may go off-trail for something really cool), so proper footwear and water is highly recommended.
