In Pictures: Day Two of The Chickadee Nature Festival
By David F. Rooney
This year’s Chickadee Nature Festival wrapped up Sunday with birding, a Bio Blitz and “a weed pull” at Skunk Cabbage Boardwalk in Mount Revelstoke National Park.
The Bio Blitz encouraged visitors to record and identify all of the different species of plants, bugs and amphibians they could find that the boardwalk. Parks Canada biologists and ecologists were on hand at different stations along the boardwalk to help participants identify their finds. As for the weed pull, the adults and kids who enthusiastically volunteered had a great time pulling up thistles and spotted knapweed.
