Celebrate Camas Day May 4

Bring your family and a picnic to listen to the Bald Eagles Band, enjoy displays and drink Silk Road Tea during Camas Day in Uplands Park.

Habitat Acquisition Trust’s Garry Oakley will welcome you to participate in hands-on activities.  Families can plant native seedlings in a pot to take home, make leaf prints on fabric and vote for their favourite wildflower. Kids will enjoy the UnNature Trail, face painting, bubbles, sidewalk chalk and the parachute.

As part of the Annual Native Plant Garden Tour, tours will run every 30 minutes in the main park or on Cattle Point.

Help heal the Garry oak meadow by removing invasive ivy and make yourself an ivy crown of stewardship. Become a Friend of Uplands Park for free.

It all happens on Sunday, May 4, from 1 to 4 p.m. at the Cattle Point entrance on Beach Drive. Contact  Margaret Lidkea at 250-595-8084 or go to for information.
