Wainwright Dunes Ecological Reserve

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

Distance: 15 km
Expected time: 5 hrs
Difficulty: moderate to difficult

Join AWA and Cliff Wallis for a unique hike and birding tour out among the grasslands and wetlands of the Wainwright Dunes Ecological Reserve, northwest of Provost. Situated adjacent to the southern boundary of the Wainwright Canadian Forces Base, this protected area is a unique combination of ecosystems. Aspen groves and sand dunes are interspersed with marshy bogs and the valley of Ribstone Creek. The Ecological Reserve has a diverse bird life representing the interface between boreal and prairie including both upland and wetland habitats.

Note the meeting point will be near the Wainwright Dunes, approximately 4 hours’ drive from Calgary. Times and location will be provided to registered participants a few days in advance of the adventure.
