I've been to Lynn Canyon on several visits but this was my first visit to the ecology center. What a treat! The wee ones enjoyed the hands on aspect of the exhibit and there was a lot to learn

I found the centre very informative about the flaura, animal life and the eco-system there. It was nice surprise to find this spot on the way to the Lynn Canyon overbridge which is where I was headed.

This little place had lots of information about the wildlife in the area and trees. Lots of hand on things to do including a draw of fake animal poo to match up! Very good reasonable shop too. I learnt a lot here.

The Ecology Center is part of the Lynn Canyon Park and suspension Bridge. The center has some very interesting exhibits and explains the background of what you are seeing in the park and along the trails.

Simply designed but informative displays on wildlife and the environment that are good for children to visit too. The centre also has a small gift shop.

What to do in Vancouver on a rainy day? Head here. Families with small children will enjoy the exhibits and puppet show area. Entrance by donation. Afterwards is the suspension bridge, lower falls and many other wonderful trails in the woods. Highly recommended.
