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.
Why? Victoria has over 20,000 active members and there are numerous treasures to be found all over the city—in outdoor parks, beaches, on trails and in forests. It’s free family fun, and who doesn’t love a treasure hunt?
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.
