Winter Ecology On Snowshoes

We are monitoring our operations to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and will adjust as needed. For more details on our response to COVID-19 please click this banner.

    Youth participants and supervisors explore Beauvais Lake Provincial Park on snowshoes, using provided snow shoe equipment!  Through interactive games and snow studies, students learn

    • How plants and animals are adapted to survive winter in the montane environment
    • To recognize animal tracks and signs during the winter
    • To enjoy some of our common winter birds and to contribute to Beauvais Lakes ebird list
    • To feel comfortable travelling on snowshoes
