The Catherine Grant Room houses our collection of natural history books. The heart of the collection was a gift from the Victoria Natural History Society. To keep the collection fresh we accept gently-used books with a nature theme and add them to our shelves.
The Children’s Corner offers a great selection of reading for all ages, in French and English.
Browse the books for information on the native plants, local mammals, birds, bees, and butterflies that you spotted during your walk around Swan Lake. Learn about which native plants are toxic and which are delicious.
Take a look at the beehive and try to find the Queen.
Come in and relax. Enjoy the spectacular view. Watch the birds. Dry off. Cool down. Warm up. Use your wireless device. Do some knitting. Write a card.
Discover the programs that are being offered in French.
During the spring our nest cam shows the inside of a nestbox and you can watch Violet Green Swallows as they raise their chicks. In 2013 they laid 5 eggs; 4 hatched and all of the chicks grew into healthy, beautiful fledgelings.
