Fall Ramble on Nose Hill

Join us for a ramble that will explore features of the Nose Hill Park landscape that tell the story of geological formation, incredible treasures of the earliest inhabitants of this land and the wildlife and the especially important and wide variety of plant species in their natural habitat. Learn why protecting native plants from invasive species makes a difference and help others learn to Leave No Trace by setting a great example and picking up as we go along.

This late fall hike will take us very close to or onto 2 small glaciers on the north side of Mount Rae in the Elbow Lake/Highwood Pass area. The first two thirds of the hike is on clear trails, the last third is on scree and is stony underfoot. The scenery in the area is spectacular.

Make the most of the winter season by joining AWA for a fun family skate at the Bowness Park Lagoon in Calgary.
