The Wilderness Centre is opening next weekend starting Saturday June 23 , providing trail & nature information to visitors to Strathcona park. There is still a lot of snow at the trailhead! so the first nature programs won’t start until July.
The first event is the annual Strathcona Park Bird Search – the count at Paradise Meadows will be on Sunday July 8. The count at the Buttle Lake area of Strathcona Park was this weekend – the snow was probably gone at the lake elevation!
A good preview of some spring birds in the sub-alpine is on the Nature Student blog.
