ANT TASTING: The Rathtrevor Beach Nature House opened its doors for a special Victoria Day weekend session that included learning all about ants and, for those who were brave enough, licking the insects to taste their bitterness (above is Mason Levin of Victoria getting ready to lick one). Travis Arnold, a park naturalist with RLC Park Services, took a group of kids ages 5-12 to a massive ant hill located near the nature house at the popular Parksville campsite.
