Winter Walk at Smith Blackburn Homestead

Late in 2018 EALT announced our most recently protected Conservation Land - the Smith Blackburn Homestead. This protected area is found near Elk Island Park and hosts a similar landscape. Already staff have seen moose, loons, and even captured a photo of a black bear! Throughout the upcoming year we will undertake stewardship activities in this new Conservation Land, and we invite you to join us for one of the first visits. We will combine a pleasant walk/snowshoe with a survey for animals and animal tracks.

We will meet at 9:00 am and carpool to the site, getting back around 3-4 pm. Wear warm winter boots and warm comfortable winter clothes, and bring a lunch, water, and a camera or binoculars if you'd like. Snowshoes may be needed for this event. If you don't have your own, you can rent snowshoes from several outdoor sport outfitters, such as MEC and Totem Outfitters. Additional information will be sent to you several days in advance of the event.

This event is full, thank you for your interest!
