About this Festival

The Waterton Wildlife Weekend is a great opportunity to learn more about the animals living in the Rocky Mountains and the prairies.

Fall is a time of shorter, crisper days, a time when leaves change to their autumn glory. It is a time when bears are busy bulking up, elk are bugling and migratory birds are fuelling up for the next leg of their journey.

Reserve Online

The Waterton Wildlife Weekend is a celebration of those events. Learn about many of the species of Waterton wildlife from bighorn sheep to elks and the interconnections that exist between all species, ecosystems and with the landscape.

This year's feature animal is the Bighorn Sheep. This time of the year there are often herds or single animals browsing through the town. The best chance to see them as close as possible.

Come enjoy the opportunity to connect with this landscape through a variety of guided walks and evening talks. We hope that the wildlife will find time in their busy schedules to grace us with their presence.

Which "eared" owl is nesting in town? We spotted the family during the wildflower festival.

We only saw your question here today. It's most likely a Great Horned Owl (we just saw the babies).

Met John Russell on a walk around Linnet Lake. I thought it was qutie exciting. Upon arrival to Waterton we were greeted by about 6 Big Horn Sheep crossing the road. This was so special as they are my favorite animal and the featured animal of Wildlife Weekend 2015. I must say the cougars did not greet us last year. lol Love Waterton; spend at least one day there almost every weekend during summer, this year we were fortunate to get a room for the whole weekend. My goal now is to complete all the hikes and get to know Waterton in the winter and spring. Karen MacDonald and Dan Nagy
