Gorge Waterway Nature House

The Gorge Waterway Nature House, located in Esquimalt Gorge Park, is the perfect place to explore your local aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems. This area is culturally, historically, and biologically significant and includes access to a beach, an urban forest, and a restored creek. The Esquimalt and Songhees First Nations traditionally used this area for food, medicine, and spiritual practice. The region was also historically popular for regattas and swimming, and is home to a great diversity of aquatic animals and birds.

Bringing the Ocean into Schools… and Schools to the Ocean!

Seaquaria brings local marine life into the classroom to let students get up close and personal with some of their aquatic neighbours. Our goal is to build a society that cares about the environment both emotionally and in practice, and to provide the basis for enduring learning skills in an ever-changing world.
