Of Foggy Forests & Caribou Ghosts

Thursday & Sunday afternoons from 1:30 PM – 4 PM

Discover the secret lives of wild things in coastal forests and bogs in the Tor Bay area. Coastal forests are thick and stunted. So, at first glance, they appear to be barely holding on to life. But take a closer look and see wonderful adaptations to the unique climate of the foggy forest. Explore what has changed with time and ponder the messages of Caribou past through art and writing.

HST included. Group pricing is available.
