Have you ever wondered what that mushroom was that you saw in Pacific Spirit Park? Or wanted to know what animals you should be aware of before trekking in Strathcona?
Fields guides are amazing resources that provide detailed information about different flora and fauna. This information can include images, scientific classifications, habitats and/or ecosystems, and how one can view or enjoy the species.
