The magic of migration is back

Posted on September 14, 2020

Every autumn countless geese take part in the breathtaking ritual of migration, using FortWhyte Alive’s lakes to prepare for their long journey ahead.

This year, we want to help give you every opportunity to be part of this beautiful experience by offering you three different ways to embrace the season.
