In keeping with Earth Day celebrations this week there will be a Walk for Wildlife at the Scout Island Nature Centre this Saturday, April 26.

Wildlife biologist Becky Cadsand will lead the discussion and walk to look at different habitat niches.

The Walk for Wildlife is a national campaign that encourages all Canadians to get outside for a walk and experience the wildlife and natural spaces in their backyards.

Participants will be citizen scientists for the day and enter all of their sightings into the Canadian Wildlife Federation database.

And of course organizers say no explorer day is complete without some games.

The walk takes place from 1 to 3 p.m. and is sponsored by the Williams Lake Field Naturalists and Young Naturalists Club.

All families are welcome to participate. Children need bring an adult.
