2 Passes to Greenheart TreeWalk. It is a suspended aerial walkway with tree platforms high above the forest ﬂoor. Located in the heart of UBC Botanical Garden, the 310 metre-long tree top canopy walkway hangs from huge Douglas firs, cedars and grand firs, many of which are over 100 years old. Reaching a height of nearly 20 metres above the forest floor, the walkway will give you a bird’s eye view of Vancouver’s magnificent coastal temperate rainforest.
Unlike other tree top canopy walkway systems bolted into the trees, the Greenheart TreeWalk’s design and engineering does not damage the trees or the surrounding delicate ecosystem. Using an innovative cable tension system, the platforms are hung from the trees without the use of nails or bolts. With features such as the “Tree Hugger” cable system and “Kissing Bar” stabilizing device, it is easy to see how the walkway is a special addition to the forest landscape.
Pole & Line is a simple and eco-friendly method of tuna fishing using a hook attached to a pole. It is rated by many conservation groups as the most environmentally friendly method of fishing tuna, as it eliminates 'by-catch' of other marine life including sea turtles and sharks.
