We're sorry; registrations have closed for this adventure.

Distance: 8 km
Difficulty: moderate

Join Benchlands residents Heinz and Kris Unger on a ramble through their rural neighbourhood West of Calgary, which includes wetlands, old-growth forest and amazing views of the mountains. The early flowers will just be blooming and the birds returning to the forest. Discover this hidden gem that few people get the chance to visit.

Starting in Benchlands, we will hike through the Ungers' neighbours' lands, enjoying great views, a variety of landscapes and early spring flowers. Enjoy the solitude as we ramble through pastures, mixed and old growth forest, wetlands, creek valleys and crossings, and old beaver dams.

There will also be the opportunity to see an example of a well managed pasture, with a well capture and cattle watering site. Heinz will discuss the importance of sustainable grazing on our public lands.

This is an about 8 km afternoon hike with relatively little elevation gain.

Please note, the coordinator will be in touch closer to the event with the exact meeting location.
