Winter has arrived, so buff up your skis and snowshoes and join us out on the trails for the Winter Program. Did you know that you can ski any day of the week, not just when the Interpretative Centre is open? The dates have been set for moonlight events so mark you calendars for January 3rd, February 7th and March 7th.
And please.....we all love our pets but we would appreciate if you kept them OFF the ski trails. Not only is it expensive to have the trails groomed but the deep ruts caused by dogs (primarily) result in dangerous skiing conditions.
One final note... visitors who bring their pets should be aware that the Federal Migratory Bird Sanctuary Regulations prohibit dogs and cats running free within sanctuaries. Sections 5(1) and 5(2) state that:
5. (1) No person who owns a dog or cat shall permit the dog or cat to run at large in a
migratory bird sanctuary.
(2) A game officer may destroy any dog or cat found chasing or molesting migratory birds in a migratory bird sanctuary.
