Are you as big as an eagle? What lives at Lost Lagoon? Do herons have an easy life? Do salmon visit Stanley Park? Discover the answers to these questions and more while leading your own adventure with our easy to use Discovery Kit. Bring your class for a half-day Park Program and extend your trip for the day. This is a great option for two classes from one school who want to share a bus. The Discovery Kit is a backpack containing a class set of binoculars, a detailed map, an easy to follow teaching script, fun props, engaging activities and visuals.
