The route goes west along the beach from Acadia Creek. Wreck Beach is one of the last close-to-wild beaches in Vancouver and has many remaining natural ecosystems to observe.
Pamela will point out the important ecosystem features on the beach. She will also spend some time talking about the way humans connect to nature in our highly fast-paced, industrialized and urban worlds and do some guided mediations to help people better accomplish these connections in a positive way.
