Naughty by Nature
Meewasin has never offered an experience quite like this like this before…
Ever wonder how porcupines get it on? We have that answer and more lined up for this fun night out at Beaver Creek. Meewasin has combined some delicious local food & beverages with a tour that takes light-hearted look at what happens in the river valley after hours.
Join Meewasin storyteller and conservationist Jamie Harder for an entertaining evening that explores the mating and courtship strategies of the wildlife at Beaver Creek Conservation Area.
Start the night with a make-your-own cocktail experience featuring Black Fox #3 Gin and local plant ingredients. After your cocktail, join Jamie on the trail to learn about the surrounding wildlife and their strategies to…well…mate.
This tour will provide laugh-out-loud facts about our favourite Beaver Creek flora and fauna but it’s not for everyone, comfort with risqué topics and a good sense humour are a must!
Following the tour, immerse yourself in the beauty of this beloved local conservation site and enjoy an individual charcuterie box especially curated for your Meewasin experience by Style & Graze, paired with 9 Mile Brewery’s new No. 1 Durum Wheat Ale or a local cider (your choice!)
Join us while we “lift the leaves” on the birds and the bees.
This is a small group experience and is limited to 12 people per tour. 19+ only please.
Due to the natural features of the trail network, this experience is not considered accessible for guests with limited mobility.
