5 Ways to Step into Autumn

The leaves have turned, the geese are migrating, and fall is here. We couldn’t be more glad. Here are a few ways to step into those #autumnvibes at FortWhyte Alive this fall.

1. Grab a Coffee and Hit the Trails

Our number one advice for stepping into fall is to keep it simple. Grab your bestie, grab a coffee and hit the trails at FortWhyte Alive. The sights, sounds and smells of our forest during this time of year is all you really need.

2. Bake Bread Like a Boss


Nothing says fall quite like the smell of freshly baked bread. Visit FortWhyte Farms where you’ll learn how to make an amazing buckwheat fermented bread, a skill you can put to good use as we turn to the chillier season. Save your spot here.

3. Take In Some Sunset Migration Magic


A FortWhyte classic. Wrap up in your favourite blanket, pack a picnic or grab a snack from our BBQ and settle in for an evening of autumn coziness as you watch sunset. We’ve been keeping this autumn tradition a long time, but the sights and sounds of thousands of migrating geese just does not get old. Did we mention you can enjoy the show with a drink? New this year. Opt for red wine for maximum coziness. Click here for more info.

4. Get Cozy at the Nature Shop


Fall is one of our favourite times the Nature Shop. New arrivals this season include beautiful scarves, blanket sweaters, autumn-inspired notebooks and amazing mugs fit for tea from the Algonquin Tea Company. Our annual Truckload Bird Seed and Fresh Crop Honey Sale is also happening Saturday, October 8 - Monday, October 10 -- a sure sign of fall!

5. Escape to the Woods With Cabin Yoga


One of our favourite cozy experiences at FortWhyte Alive is back. Cabin Yoga is back on Sundays this fall at FortWhyte, October 16 and 30, and November 13 and 27. Reserve your spots here.
