Elk Island National Park - Alberta Canada

5 years ago

I remember back when I was in junior high we went on a field trip to Elk Island National Park to learn about the wild life and ecology. Funny thing is the only thing I remember from that trip was "Don`t get within 100 metres of the bison, they may charge at you" Lol. So after hearing that yeah we kept a safe distance lol. Elk Island National Park is home to bison, moose, deer, trumpeter swans, and of course elk. Elk Island National Park is probably most used for its park programs like the one I did when I was younger, but it`s also a place for walks, hiking, camping, canoeing, kayaking, sailing, golfing, cross country skiing, and snowshoeing in the winter. I have not been back since my field trip probably because it`s quite far away and you drive on rural roads to get there which means more chances of hitting things on the road regardless of how fast or slow you`re going.

Did you go on any field trips to learn about wild life and ecology when you were younger or in post secondary? If so where?
