Western Water & Wildlife Tour

Thursday, May 18, 2017

Come SEE nature hotspots in Manitoba with a guided water & wildlife tour June 9-11.

Join us as we travel by bus to several natural areas in western Manitoba, and EXPERIENCE the area with short interpretive walks. LEARN about the wilderness, wildlife, and water, and what we need to do to preserve them.

We’ll visit Whitewater Lake, the Lauder Sand Hills, and the Souris River, as well as other spots.

How do we improve Lake Winnipeg’s health? How do we mitigate flooding risk?

Do migratory and nesting birds need help in Manitoba? Are there things we can do to preserve endangered prairie species and ecosystems?

All that and more as we explore the hidden wilderness of western Manitoba’s at-risk areas.
