As true adventurers, our expeditions will take us off the beaten path as we discover the secrets of the plants and animals that call FortWhyte Alive home. Following the concept of ‘leave no trace’ we will tread lightly as we travel through the forests and grasslands and learn how each one of us can do our part to protect nature.
