• Message from the Director

      It looks like the warmer weather has finally arrived and the Parks are starting to come alive with the signs of spring. The wildflowers will soon be aplenty, especially at the Garbry Sanctuary, Maple Ridge and Stillwater Prairie Rangeline Access. We have also seen and heard many new birds while out on the trails. There is so much to see as we watch nature make the transition from winter to spring.

      It will now be much more enjoyable to be outside walking or running in the Parks. Renew your effort to improve your health and fitness by stepping out onto the trail and participating in our Trail Run Challenge. Earth Action Month is also just around the corner. We are extremely fortunate that many volunteers have signed up to participate by planting trees, picking up trash and removing invasive plants.
