Baxter Family Programs

Baxter’s Family Programs are back and even more convenient for your family! We have improved the format to allow your family to come and participate in our activities whenever it suits you – no stress to get here on time, no rush to leave.

On Thursday, July 25 and Tuesday, August 6, we will be running our new and improved Family Programs. Simple bring your family any time between the hours of 10 AM and 2 PM. We will be running a continuous Pond Study, so you can join in any time. We will also be running a short ~25 min nature walk that leaves every 30 min from the Interpretive Centre. Too hot? Come inside the Interpretive Centre to check out our collection of furs, skulls and live animals to take a break in the a/c and learn something about animals. If you are feeling creative, you can spend some time in the shade and create whatever you imagine from our loose parts – hammocks, swings, traps, obstacle course – whatever you can think of!

To participate in any or all of these activities, the cost will be $5 per person and a maximum of $20 per family. Cash or cheque only – we cannot accept credit cards.

There is NO PRE-REGISTRATION REQUIRED! When you arrive, just stop in at the Interpretive Centre and one of our staff members will take your cash or cheque payment and then direct you towards the activities you are interested in. Come explore with us in summer 2019!
