Bears and Salmon
This program is 1.5 hours
For groups of up to 30 adults
Experience the wild beauty of Lynn Canyon’s forests and discover the animals that call this forest home. Our Bears and Salmon tour takes you on a walk through the temperate rainforest of Lynn Canyon Park. We will visit the Suspension Bridge, a walkway that hangs almost 50 meters above the canyon. During the tour, your group will have the opportunity to see Lynn Creek and learn how animals like the salmon depend on the river as a home and as a migration route to the ocean. Learn about the signs that show that a bear has travelled in the forest before you, and discover how bears and salmon are connected to the forest in a powerful ecological bond.
Cost: $3.00 per person.
