Spring Flower Count
Don't just stop to look at the flowers... count them!
This is a wonderful opportunity to explore the park while looking for and learning some of Waterton’s fantastic plants from an experienced botanist.
A spring count of what is in flower is held annually, on the last weekend of May. Your Saturday morning sightings contribute to tracking climate-driven changes in the number of plants flowering in the park as part of an Alberta-wide snapshot.
•Come prepared for a morning outside
•Have some basic knowledge of plant identification. An expert is on hand for confirmation of identifications and assistance
•You are also welcome to count on your own during the rest of the weekend
•Identify and count plant species in bloom (noting general location)
•Coordinate activities with, and submit count information to, project supervisor
