Beaver Hills Bioblitz Event
Sponsored by the Alberta Chapter of The Wildlife Society & Beaver Hills Initiative
Location: Strathcona Wilderness Centre
Date: January 19, 2014 1-4PM
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!
THANK YOU TO OUR PARTNERS:
In 1970, six natural history clubs joined together to form the Federation of Alberta Naturalists. Today, this same organization, now known as Nature Alberta serves a membership of over 40 clubs and represents thousands of individuals across the province. These individuals share a passion for natural history.
Natural history is the study of plants or animals, using observational rather than experimental methods.
Alberta is fortunate to have a wide diversity of wildlife and wild spaces. All native plants and animals have a right to co-exist with Albertans, who in turn benefit by having access to a healthy, natural environment. Increasing our understanding of nature will lead to increased enjoyment of it.
