Canada's only Cave Theatre and Museum is located at Horne Lake Caves Provincial Park. There, visitors will learn about the history of the caves and why they need to be protected. If you prefer your adventures above-ground, the Cave Theatre and Fossil Trail will reveal the park's mysteries without having to venture inside the caves.

For more environmental education and to see wildlife up-close, visit the North Island Wildlife Recovery Centre, home to more than sixty resident, non-releasable animals as well as those who will return to the wild. See the largest eagle flight enclosure of its kind in Canada, a Museum of Nature showcasing the animals of Vancouver Island, a native wildlife garden, ponds, and more!

Vancouver Island University's Deep Bay Marine Field Station (currently closed due to COVID-19) provides many learning opportunities for the public. The station is home to aquariums and touch tanks that help to interpret the local marine environment to visitors. A visit to the station can be quite an interactive experience! Both guided and self-guided tours provide interpretation on several themes along with occasional public lectures and special events.
