Critter Capers is back with a new beach-themed mystery. Case of the Cracked Shell will take place on Saturday July 28th, from 10am – 2pm at Belcarra Regional Park in Port Moody. It’s a beautiful location for our summer mystery.
Here’s what happened: Slimon the slug was sliding along the forest floor when he came across a cracked shell. He had never seen a clam shell in the forest before and he started to worry that something was out to get all molluscs, slugs included! What if it tried to eat him next? Help Slimon find out who cracked the shell and how it got into the forest. Visit the clue stations and touch live sea stars and shore crabs, identify feathers and even make a plaster animal track to take home.
This free family event is ideal for detectives ages six and older. Meet at the Belcarra Picnic Area at the end of Tum-tumay-whueton Drive. Allow 1 hour to walk the loop trail and solve the case. Complete the mystery before 2 pm and receive a reward.

Note: This is a popular picnic spot and the parking lot is often full by noon. (There is overflow parking, but it does involve a 1 km walk.) So come early and pack a picnic lunch to enjoy at the beach!
