Goodsir Nature Park open for winter

The city's botanical curiosity, Goodsir Nature Park, is once again going to be open for winter outings.

"Experience winter at its best," said proprietor Jim Good. "We are open for cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, winter camping, get-together campfires, through the holiday season and into the new year."

The outdoor facility is a wonderland in winter of Canadian trees and shrubs, many of which grow no other place but there due to to Good's transplantation program over the decades. It is about to enter its 30th year of operation.

It is a pleasant walk through well-marked wilderness trails wandering about his little private forest from the souvenir shop and vinyl record museum at the front parking lot.

Admission, including overnight camping, is by donation.

Drop-ins are welcome, but guided tours and overnight camping should be arranged with an advance phone call to 250-971-2337.

Goodsir Nature Park is located at 22825 Old Summit Lake Rd., about 30 minutes' drive north of the city.
