CRD Parks programs slated for this weekend in Metchosin, Langford

Capital Regional District Parks naturalists help unlock the mysteries of the natural flora and fauna with guided jaunts this weekend through Devonian Regional Park in Metchosin and Mill Hill Regional Park in Langford.

On Saturday (April 11) from 1 to 3 p.m., hike the beautiful terrain during the Tall Trees walk at Devonian Park. The hike is suitable for people age five and up, and participants are asked to meet at the park kiosk in the 4700-block of William Head Rd.

A spring wildflower hike, designed for adults (18-up) happens from 10 a.m. to noon Sunday at Mill Hill, starting from the information kiosk off Atkins Road. An afternoon hike is also planned, but call to find out the time. This program is free, but pre-registration is needed as space is limited. Call 250-478-3344 or visit to sign up.
