The schedule of guided events in the Nature Park and Horse Barn Valley is now finalized. From May through October, volunteers from the Nature Park Society will be leading 26 guided outings in the Park and Interpretive Forest. All the events are free and everyone is welcome.
You can take your Mom or Dad for an invigorating hike on Mother's Day or Father's Day, or learn about the rocks and landforms of the park from a professional geologist. You can get an introduction to the park's mountain bike trails or explore the Horse Barn Valley Interpretive Forest. You can learn about the berries in the park and their importance to wildlife or you can spend some time with a local nature photographer and pick up some tips about capturing stunning images. Any Saturday morning in July and August join us for a two and half hour walk from the Riverside Campground and learn about the ecology and history of the park. In September you can celebrate Canada's 150th birthday (and the KNPS 30th anniversary) by walking the Trans Canada Trail from one side of the park to the other or come out for an evening walk to watch the sun set and stars come out. In October take part in one of two walks to Dipper Lake that celebrate the glorious colours of fall.
