The 2017 Children & Nature Network International Conference and Summit will take place at the Westin Bayshore Hotel and Conference Center
Nestled next to 1,000-acre Stanley Park, The Westin Bayshore, is ideally situated for enjoying Vancouver’s rich cultural heritage as well as nature right at its doorstep. Long known as one of the world’s most walkable cities, Vancouver was recently named one of the top ten beach cities in the world by National Geographic—and many of those beaches are accessible on foot from the hotel. Vancouver is also on the path to becoming the greenest city in the world as well as winning many awards as a tourist and conference destination such as ranking #1 in the category of Best Places to Visit in Canada, and praised as a “go-to getaway for the multi-faceted traveler” by U.S. News & World Report Best Vacations Rankings (June 2016).
