April is the perfect month to walk the Woodpecker trail in Squamish estuary. The trees are just starting to leaf out, allowing dappled light to reach the forest floor. Explore on your own, or join us for a guided walk on April 24th. Whichever way you go, take time to enjoy the spring flowers and listen for bird song! Here’s a sneak peek at what you’ll see.
