Nature House

Environmental Education in Vancouver Island's Provincial Parks

Whether you're a camper, a teacher or just out for a stroll, don't miss out on the amazing opportunities to learn and experience the magic of parks offered at our Nature Houses.

Goldstream Nature House

Every fall, visitors to the Goldstream Nature House marvel at the spawning salmon along with the flocks of eagles, gulls and other scavengers that show up hoping to share in the spoils of the salmon run. 

Not only do visitors learn about responsible salmon viewing, they get a deep dive into salmon biology and ecology, learn about local flora and fauna, and experience all the recreational opportunities that our parks provide.

With programming designed to inspire, engage and entertain, the Nature House is where the next generation of environmental stewardship is fostered. 

Fall 2022 we had three Discover Park Ambassadors welcoming and engaging with groups, schools and visitors who wanted to learn more about the salmon run, check out the report on how it went HERE!

Rathtrevor Beach Nature House

Offering exciting spring and summer camps, and fun events such as the Tour De Park - a bicycle decorating and parade - the Rathtrevor Beach Nature House was buzzing with activity. However, during COVID, the Nature House was unfortunately closed. Efforts are underway to revive the well-loved programming offered. Please consider making a gift to help kids have access to these programs for 2023.
