Share this article

Parks Canada has launched new interpretive programs at the Gulf Islands National Park Preserve for this summer.

As per a report, every Saturday until the end of August, SMONEĆTEN Campground will host the Coast Salish Traditions Campfire program. Between 7 to 8 p.m., Coast Salish storytellers will share traditional stories with campers around the campfire.

According to its website, Gulf Islands National Park Reserve offers a variety of camping opportunities for families, backpackers, kayakers, and boaters. 

This year’s sessions will focus on the southern resident killer whale and the setting and meaning of the SENĆOTEN name.

At the Shaw Centre for the Salish Sea, student interpreters will return inside the center to deliver fun activities and demonstrations each day the aquarium is open throughout the summer.

On Saturdays, Sidney Spit is the place to be. Park guides will rove around the spit, helping visitors recognize the differences between healthy and unhealthy sand dunes and the best ways to help protect endangered species like the common nighthawks.

The activities continue on Sundays with a drop-in program running from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on the spit, with interpreters teaching visitors about W̱SÁNEĆ culture and SENĆOTEN words for significant plant species on the island.
