Discover the Whitemud Nature Reserve in the Edmonton Area Land Trust’s (EALT) Larch Sanctuary on Sunday August 25th from 11am to 1pm. The Aquatic Biosphere Project is once again partnering with EALT to provide a guided walk and exploration of this important ecosystem within our River Valley.
The Whitemud Creek is an important corridor for wildlife in the River Valley and a major tributary of the North Saskatchewan River. It has the additional protection of a Conservation Easement which ensures its status as an important ecological space. On this guided walk you’ll learn about the flora and fauna of the Creek and Ravine, the role it plays in linking our water systems together and what challenges it currently faces. The Sanctuary is also home to Bee Hotels and is working to create bat box spaces.
This is a beautiful spot inside our City and easily accessible off of 23rd Avenue between Rabbit Hill Road and 119 Street. Pack a picnic for after the walk, bring your binoculars, camera or sketch book. Curious kiddos welcome.
