Interpretive Program

A free interpretive program runs at the park mostly during the spring and summer for educational groups. The first part of the tour features a hike through a marsh, a view of a beaver pond and a talk about the park's plants and wildlife. The second part of the program, pond dipping, is a hands-on activity where small nets are used to catch pond creatures such as dragonfly nymphs, frogs and water beetles. 

If you are a school or educational group and wish to book an interpretive tour of Cheam Lake Wetlands, this programming will be available in the fall dependant on current public health orders. Please call 604-702-5024 to discuss the possibility of an interpretive tour later this year.
