Algonquin Park Wildlife Ski Tour

Follow the links below to register for the event.


December 20, 2012
Hello fellow skiers! Here in Algonquin Park the snow flurries are passing through, and bringing thoughts of the quickly approaching ski season. On behalf of Algonquin Provincial Park, the Algonquin Wildlife Research Station, and The Friends of Algonquin Park, I am happy to be sending your club information about a new event happening in Algonquin Park on Saturday, March 2nd, 2013.

The event “A Wildlife Ski Tour in Algonquin Park” is an informal ski tour, with the added attraction of a wildlife theme. Skiers will start at the parking lot of the Leaf Lake Ski Trails in Algonquin Park, and can take a 5 or 12 km ski (skate or classic) through the forest, where interpretive signs will alert them to winter activities and hibernating areas of different animals. A chili lunch will be served at Dee’s cabin, (located on the trail in heart of Algonquin’s ski trail network) and participants can talk to researchers about their discoveries in the park, and see some of the equipment used for these studies. There will also be a wide selection of draw prizes which you will automatically be entered in for attending!

The low cost for this first time, one of a kind, event is only $10/person or $25/family, plus park entrance fees ($16/vehicle). All proceeds will support Natural Heritage Education and Wildlife Research in Algonquin Park. More information is available at http://www.algonquinwrs.ca/Ski.html, or by emailing wildlife.ski@gmail.com. Registration will soon be available online through http://www.algonquinpark.on.ca or by calling (613) 637-2828. If you could add this event to your club schedule or include it as a save the date in your next club mailing, it would be greatly appreciated. There will be a follow-up event poster to come in January!
