It’s that time of year again when we celebrate being Canadian, and there’s no better way to do so than to get outdoors. Our Savvy Guide to July is designed to ensure that you do just that (and create some summer memories while you’re at it).
Wear daily moisturizer with SPF
Why? Because UV levels are higher than usual this year due to record ozone loss above the Arctic last winter. It’s also the best way to set an example for our kids.
To Prince’s Island Park
Why? It’s your chance to take part in one of several festivals including Canada Day activities this weekend. Feed the ducks and enjoy one of Calgary’s best playgrounds (with wading pool) on a summer afternoon.
A good hat
Why? Because fedoras aren’t just for men these days, you know. We like this wide-brimmed one from Tilley.
Create some log cabins out of sticks
Why? Because you can make a whole nature village. Collect the sticks and break them up into even lengths. Stack them in a square for the walls, then lay horizontally for the roof. Decorate with flowers and other nature items.
