1) Pond Peek with a Park Ranger

Our region is known for its mild, damp conditions, creating the perfect pond habitats for a multitude of creatures, from dragonflies to tadpoles. Join a park ranger for a closer look into the water at the critters that call these ponds home, and learn more about their fascinating (and often strange) lives by seeing them firsthand! We’ll be looking at live animals, so get ready to use those observational skills and learn lots!

Cost: Free! Pre-registration required. Pre-register at link below – two time options available. All participants must wear a face mask and maintain 6 feet of distance from those outside their household. Maximum enrollment 10. Outdoor only.

The Treehouse at Camp Canlis. 

The experience…It was phenomenal.  All details from attire, food delivery, the decor were absolutely on point.  The food was good… where every bite was nice, but portions were small.  Seems like, for a tasting menu, the entree needed to be slightly more, or one more course would’ve been nice.  Regardless, I would 100% recommend this for the experience alone.  Canlis food will always be great, but their attention to detail, communication, and staff/service is incredible.


Let me know what you’re going to do for fun this week, and have a great weekend!
