Feeling like it might be a wild weekend? Check out Critter Care Wildlife Society's annual Walk on the Wild Side WalkAThon in Campbell Valley Regional Park, Sunday.
For 26 years, the organization has been educating about and caring for native mammals of the Lower Mainland. One of its largest fundraisers, the walkathon is an active way for community members to get involved and support the work Critter Care does.
Registration is $5 and those earning pledges of $100 or more receive a special surprise.
Plus, dogs are welcome to join in the short (2k) or long (4k) walks if they are on a leash.
Participants are invited to "put on their wildest walking gear" and bring friends and family along for a walk through the park.
Goodies and prizes will be offered up, as well as unique items like handmade jewelry that are available for sale.
There will also be a number of exhibitors and education on wildlife in and around B.C. Registration is at 10:30 a.m. at the south entrance to Campbell Valley Park off 8th Avenue, the walks start at 11:30 a.m., and the event wraps up with a light barbecue.
