Enjoy a different kind of Vancouver walking tour as you step into some snowshoes and discover the connection between the pristine North Shore mountain snow and our drinking water. Metro Vancouver is hosting a dozen watershed snowshoe tours on Mount Seymour this winter where you can learn about your local water supply in a fun and active way.
Watershed Snowshoe Tours on Mount Seymour
Join Metro Vancouver staff on a guided tour of the peaks towering above the Seymour Valley; one of three places where water for over 2.4 million residents is collected and stored. Discover local plants and animals that call this alpine area home. After a moderately strenuous hike, warm up with a cup of hot cocoa.
