Canopy Climb at Shaw Nature Reserve

Sun, 09/23/2012

Take your passion for nature to new heights and explore majestic trees like never before! In this one-and-one-half-hour experience, a certified tree-climbing instructor will teach you to ascend on your own into a tree canopy.

Once there, you'll be able to sit on branches, limb-walk, lie in hammocks or relax in a suspended chair as you enjoy an inspiring birds-eye view of the world. Throughout the experience, you'll learn about forest canopy biodiversity and conservation close to home and around the world. Several vertical lines will be available, and climbers can choose to ascend more than one line as time allows. Climbers must be at least 8 years old. Space is limited to 12 climbers per session.

Sessions at 9:30 a.m., 11:30 a.m. 1:30 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. Fees are $43 per child or adult climber.
