Attendees are welcome to drop-in at anytime during the event and are invited to wear costumes as there will be prizes for the best dressed adventurers.

The parks naturalists will meet everyone at the Nature Centre off Munn Road.

Francis/Kings Regional Park is located near Thetis Lake Regional Park – about a 20 minute drive from Victoria. Parking is available and the Elsie King Trail is wheelchair-accessible.

All CRD events run rain or shine so it is recommended to dress for the weather. Pets are not welcome at the event as they can be disruptive.
