Join us in Metro Continuing Education‘s newest outdoor programs. The Aquatic Biosphere will be running two fall guided walks, called “Fall Family Forest Fun” in October. Join our biologists for a stroll through the beautiful fall paths of the Larch Sanctuary in Edmonton. All ages are welcome. You’ll explore and examine the fall adaptions of our local ecosystems in preparation for the long dark of winter. Bring your camera for some spectacular fall pictures.

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.
