Norsemen Inn: Meet at Registration Desk
Cost: FREE – Sponsored by Strathcona County
Enjoy a full day immersed in the unique landscapes and history of the Beaver Hills Biosphere, a world-class example of a working landscape where the pillars of sustainable land use leading to long-term quality of water, land, air, natural resources, and community development are on display. We will wander through the biosphere and make intermittent stops and walks that highlight landscape and human history as well as conservation successes with species such as swans, bison, and fishers. Guided interpretation provided by local residents and naturalists, Glen Lawrence and Margo Pybus.
Please note: the field trip will begin at the Norsemen Inn (meet at the Registration Desk). Then a bus will transport field trip participants to the offsite locations. Please prepare for being outside for intermittent extended periods during (possible) cold winter temperatures. This is an all-day field trip – a bagged lunch will be provided.
