A Metro Vancouver park interpreter will lead a walk from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. along the  Admiralty Trail to Burns Point. Hikers will travel along the shoreline and take in views of Burrard Inlet through a west coast forest with towering Douglas fir, hemlock and cedar trees while learning about the ecosystem at the park.

The walk is for people 13 years of age and older. Cost is $3.35 per person for youths and seniors, $5.50 for adults.

Advance registration required. To register, visit or call 604-432-6359, quoting barcode 5604.
