City Nature Challenge: Flora of the Weaselhead Area
April 26, 2019 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pmFree
The Weaselhead is one of the most beautiful natural areas within Calgary! Explore the rich biodiversity that exist along the trails of the park and catalog your findings for CNC YYC. Together, we will learn about the trees, shrubs, grasses and any spring native flowers that are brave enough to show themselves. Keep your cameras on hand so you can document any wildlife or insects along the walk. We will hike approximately 4 km.
