16V Flowers of Waterton & the Butterflies Who Love Them
7:30 pm to 9:30 pm | with Lyndon Penner | By Donation | At Falls Theatre
This is a story of love and survival in the Alberta Rockies, full of colourful characters, unlikely alliances, and heart-stopping drama in the high alpine meadows! Obviously we are talking about the wildflowers and the butterflies who care for them! Although often dismissed as being merely pretty things to look at, butterflies are much more than they seem. They provide a crucial link in the food chain with their caterpillars feeding many birds and other insects, and they themselves fulfilling an incredibly crucial role as pollinators. Many mountain plants are dependent upon them for survival, and they engage in interesting, complex, and sometimes puzzling behavior. Join Lyndon for an introduction to these small but critical citizens of the park and be amazed!

20T Hawks Nest - A Memorial Walk for John Russell
3:00 pm to 5:00 pm | with Charlie Russell | By Donation
Charlie will lead a walk from the Hawk’s Nest up to the Butte west of the house.
Charlie says: “It is a hike that John and the rest of us who live here have done many hundreds of times because the Butte looks out over the ranch that has been in the family for 111 years. It is land that John had a great love for. He looked after it for most of his life, seeing that it was not grazed too heavily and that the fences are in good repair. He loved to do this and I will love to tell people about it and try to explain what made my wonderful brother tick. (Only problem is that I will not be able to get the names of all the parsnips and Solomon seals that the bears like to eat refreshed by him this year.)”
- All donations will go to the Castle Crown Wilderness Association in John’s name.
Activity Level: Moderate
