Celebrate World Environment Day

Today—June 5—is World Environment day!

With the warmer weather’s arrival, it is an ideal opportunity to slip a flora or fauna guide in your pocket and explore our beautiful Canadian West Coast (health guidelines permitting, of course) or to sit back and read a good book.

Check out our curated list of nature-focused books for some inspiration.
