About the event

It's just about time to hit the scenic trails of the JJ Collett Natural Area for the annual spring walk, set for May 26 at 2 p.m. The site is located near Morningside and consists of 635 acres of Aspen Parkland. On May 26, there will be guided tours with local naturalists who will identify plants and wildlife against the backdrop of the spring season.

There are two walks - one that is more extensive and provides more detail, and another which is shorter. The event will wrap up with a get-together complete with refreshments and snacks. Everyone is welcome to join, and are asked to meet at the timber structure inside the gates. According to the website, more than 18 kilometres of maintained trail "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." Dunes are a unique feature of this area as well. For more information, visit
