Vancouver Lake Family Hike

Connect to nature at Vancouver Lake Regional Park while exploring the beach and forested trails with an environmental educator.

The Lower Columbia Estuary Partnership invites you and your family to a kid-focused nature walk. Together, we will search for signs of wildlife along the forested trail and sandy beach, and use binoculars to see birds soaring in the sky.

Fun for kids of all ages. Pre-registration is required. *We will not be swimming or playing in the water.
