Your guide, a member of a First Nations tribe, will share his or her own family history and background, before leading you to the base of the trail to begin your interpretive forest walk around Beaver Lake.
Learn about the Coast Salish First Nations people and the first settlers of this area. At a leisurely pace covering a little more than a mile (2 km), hear about how the aboriginal people have lived and managed the land for generations.
