Strathcona Wilderness Institute

Spring Conditions

Driving up to Paradise Meadows you pass from summer, through spring, up to late winter….as there is still snow covering the trails at 1100 m. The conditions are similar to early July 2011 so about 3 weeks ahead of last year. The parking area for the Centre is mostly free of snow.

Birds seen & heard included:

Common Raven

Cooper’s Hawk

Sooty Grouse

Varied Thrush

Hermit Thrush

White-crowned Sparrow

Pine Siskin

BC Parks Rangers were installing the outdoor signage. The Centre is almost ready for opening – the first date for volunteer staffing is Saturday June 23.
