Alberta Parks

Winter Ecology

Day Use is permitted. Outhouse facilities are open where feasible - be prepared with your own hand sanitizer and toilet paper. Campgrounds open, starting June 1 at 50% capacity. Second RV units will not be permitted on campsites. We are monitoring our actions to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and will adjust as needed.

What happens come winter?  Through a series of activities, students develop an understanding of how plants and animals meet their basic needs in winter.  Using an exploratory apporach, students uncover the characteristics of snow and identify animal tracks.
