We need your help to clear an of-fence-ive structure on the Campbell property! By removing this 1/2 mile of barbed wire fencing we can allow for the safer movement of wildlife! We will also be joined by special guest Jillian Cameron who will give a talk about her amphibian work and the use of bioacoustics in monitoring. As well, we will have a local expert talk on the Beaver Hills Initiative and the local history of the area.

The Campbell Property consists of 65 hectares (160 ac.) of land, which host an excellent example of the boreal mixed wood forests of the Cooking Lake Moraine. Its trembling aspen and balsam poplar forest surrounds several small wetlands, where species like the horned grebe, wood frog, American beaver and moose can be spotted. Located 10 km southwest from Lindbrook, the area is directly northeast of the Ministik Game Bird Sanctuary and within the UNESCO Beaver Hills Biosphere Reserve.What you will be doing
