Discovery Walks

Discovery Walks have been suspended because of restrictions related to COVID-19.

Scheduled Walks: 2020

We look forward to exploring for and appreciating intriguing mysteries and exquisite details, shining our focus on small wonders we tend to pass by.  All are welcome! Walks take place on the 4th Sunday of the month, from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm. Walk details are posted here and on our Facebook page close to the scheduled date.

  • We’ll post details here as soon as we have them.

Informal Walks

Does your busy life make it impractical to attend scheduled walks? Check out Biodiversity Squamish! Participate in your own time and with others as we document the flora and fauna of our local area, research historical data from this area and collaborate with other groups. Contact Judith Holm for more information and to find the company of others on walks.

General Information

SES Discovery Walks range from gentle walks to more strenuous hikes and explorations. Along the way we enjoy being ‘out there’, collect observations for the Biodiversity Squamish project, and learn from one another in an informal setting.

In some cases, participants are required to register in advance, and this is clearly stated in the notice about the walk. Here’s a link to the waiver that each participant needs to sign for this kind of walk, so that you can read it in your own time.

Our walks are led by volunteers and are offered free of charge. Donations are welcome. About the walk leaders.

Have an idea for a walk? Or interested in leading a walk? Contact our Volunteer Coordinator.

What to Bring

  • Dress for the weather (e.g. warm layers, rain protection, sun protection)
  • Small pack
  • Camera/phone
  • Water or thermos, snack
