Uplands Park grassy field entrance to Cattle Point
Did you know that Garry oak trees are a favourite café to over 800 insects? Join naturalist Stephanie Weinstein and UVic entomologist Steve Perlman to collect bugs and explore the Garry Oak Ecosystems of Uplands Park, one of the oldest “restaurants” of Victoria. Bring your family, use our equipment and make a crafty insect to take home. All ages, donations welcome. Picnics desirable.
