The Park Tour and City Nature Challenge is a great opportunity to engage in citizen science and find out about the fantastic volunteer work going on in Saanich parks! Three parks are featured
with Saanich Parks staff and volunteers available to share knowledge about the park,
its biodiversity, and the ongoing ecological restoration work. Experience a mini guided tour of the park with a Pulling Together volunteer, learn about using iNaturalist to document observations in nature, and participate in the Greater Victoria City Nature Challenge project for a chance to win prizes through our partners at the CRD. All ages and abilities welcome!
