Join us for a day inspired by wildlife movement!

The first part of our day will be focused on removing an unnecessary fence on the Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC) Lang property, just outside of Beauvais Lake Provincial Park.

After the fence is removed, volunteers are invited to come along as we hike up a short distance to join Peter Sherrington, Research Director of the Rocky Mountain Eagle Research Foundation during his count of the Golden Eagles as they migrate.

The fun doesn’t end there! You are also invited to join us as Peter Sherrington gives a special presentation in the evening at the Frank Slide Interpretive Theater.
