Water sports are fun anytime. Swimming is always a useful skill and could even save the life of someone you love. Check out white water rafting, kayaking, canoeing and maybe even dragon-boating. If you’re feeling really adventurous, try surfing or scuba diving.
Fishing is a popular pasttime and one that embraces our past. Learn to fish, go for a guided trip, or simply try fishing at a well-stocked pond. Young children enjoy the accomplishment of catching their first fish—and there’s nothing like fresh caught fish for supper. Be sure to get a license.
The young and the young-at-heart are fascinated with animals. Explore wild bird habitats, nature preserves, and wild animal sanctuaries. The Great Blue Heron Nature Preserve in Chilliwack boasts that it is the home to the only non-migratory Great Blue heronry in North America. Closer to home, you might want to visit the George C. Reifel Migratory Bird Sanctuary in Delta for a view of the Snow Geese.
