Join ACTWS and the Beaver Hills Initiative for the Beaver Hills Bioblitz on World Snow Day - January 19, 2014
Come join us on World Snow Day and Meet a Biologist at the Strathcona Wilderness Centre for a fun-filled winter day. Meet a live owl and some cold-blooded friends. Take a break from the trail and listen to a short talk on how biologists count moose from above, clues from scat, and the fascinating world of beavers. Then head out on the trail with a professional biologist to learn more about the study of wildlife through tracks, signs and sounds. There will be short demos on using wildlife cameras, radio telemetry and the art of tracking. Play the scavenger hunt game and add to the species list to win a prize. Work up an appetite and join us back at the Cookhouse for a hot drink and campfire snack. Walk, ski or snowshoe (equipment rentals available)- fun for the whole family!
