“The Observation Challenge is designed to encourage people to spend time in the park and look for 12 ‘things’ along the 7.3-km multi-use Forest Loop trail,” explains Perrin. [The Coast Salish name for Forest Loop is ‘ʔayigən’, pronounced ‘eye-eee-gin’.] “My friend, Anne Smythe, and I had fun riding through Seal Bay to identify items and then I created a list of 12 clues. Things to look for can be natural or man-made and, with the exception of the first one being close to the parking lot, all items are located on — and visible from — the Forest Loop trail. We encourage all participants to stay on the designated trails and to practice the BCHBC’s commitment to ‘Leave no trace.’ Be sure to pack a water bottle and wear comfortable shoes because it takes about two hours to leisurely walk the Forest Loop.”
