The Wild About Vancouver Outdoor Education Festival (WAV-pronounced wave) partners with local organizations to provide dozens of free, outdoor-focused activities that showcase the fun and learning to be found in neighbourhoods across our city. Our goal is to get more people outdoors more often!

WAV would like to acknowledge that events take place on the traditional unceded territory of the Musqueam, Squamish and Tsleil-Waututh peoples.

Spread the outdoor love
