This was a neat little center with displays about the various animals, birds, fish etc in the area. There are also dioramas showing how humans have changed their surroundings. Very educational but smaller than we thought it would be.

Lots of interesting information presented in a fun format. My 13&14year old really liked it. There's a few nice gifts and postcards to browse too.

Great interactive information centre. Spent about 1 hour before kids got bored. Do it as part of the suspension bridge/walk/paddling visit. Come earlyish as free parking does get filled up.

As a Lynn Valley local the Ecology Centre played an important role in my childhood. As daytime nanny is was a favourite spot to bring the kids.

If you have school age children this is a must if you are in the Vancouver area. There not only are animals but also lots of ecology and environment study exhibits and many hands on exhibits for children. Admission is by donation and goes to improve and support the work they are doing in the surrounding environment.

Our hotel was downtown on Granville. We travelled by bus to take the ferry to North Vancouver. From there we also took a bus to get up to Lynn Canyon. Remember that you need exact change for the bus!

Nothing high tech about this ecology centre. Just sound basic exhibits with some interesting info about the local flora and fauna.

We ended up here because the price of Capilano was extortionate. There were not nearly so many people. A relaxing and pleasant hike with the bridge attraction an obvious asset. Also it was free and still enjoyable. The food was not anything special and not exactly cheap. Seems to be the going theme everywhere these days!

If you are a local or visitor and it's raining, this is a good place to spend an hour or more. Especially fun for little kids and possibly up to age of 12. Educational

If you're planning on going to the Lynn Canyon Suspension Bridge, then take a few extra minutes and visit the Ecology Centre, it's only a few steps away. It's very informative about the area
