For the May installment of the Nature Calgary Speakers Series, Andrew Hart will present “Nature Calgary at Waterton National Park:

Presented by Andrew Hart, past president, Nature Calgary.  For the last nine years Andrew has led the annual Nature Calgary “Waterton Weekend”.  The tenth trip will be this July, a wonderful way to enjoy the National Park in this 150th year of confederation.  Andrew will talk about the park, its flora and fauna, and some of the hikes that we have enjoyed on past visits.  The focus will be on places, birds, plants, and animals that participants can expect  to see on one of these trips.

Come out and learn about this wonderful park in Canada’s 150th year!
