2017 Workshop Field Trip

30th ANPC Workshop – Field Trip

Sunday, April 30, 2017

 

This year our field trip will visit the JJ Collett Provincial Natural Area. It is located in rural central Alberta near the hamlet of Morningside, south of Ponoka and consists of 635 acres of Aspen Parkland underlain by ancient sand dunes.  Over 18 km of maintained trails wind through a mosaic of shrub lands, aspen groves, stands of white spruce on moist shady hillsides, wetlands and grassy meadows typical of the area.  The JJ Collett Natural Area Foundation was established in 1985, as a provincial volunteer steward group to help preserve, maintain and provide environmental education for this ecologically diverse habitat.

For more information about the Natural Area see their website:    http://www.jjcollett.com
