Yesterday, we left at about 6:00 AM, Stephanie Lisoway, an enterprising young writer with the Neepawa Banner in Neepawa, Manitoba. (Neepawa is the birth-place of Margaret Laurence, the well-known Canadian writer). Stephanie contacted me some weeks back, asking if she could head out for a morning of wildlife viewing and a short photo safari. She felt that the 13,000 readers of the Neepawa Banner would like to know what we do, as an outdoor learning adventure company.
We had a great morning. I am grateful to be able to live beside a national park, where I can be reminded of the bio-diversity of life, where the water that comes out of the national park is rich with invertebrates, and where wild nature re-connects me each day to the why I enjoy inspiring and putting visitors in touch with the beauty of our planet. She has kindly provided us with a downloadable pdf link of the article – Hidden Gem In Our Own Backyard– that she wrote. Thank you Stephanie!
The video below gives you some short insights into a few memorable moments of wildlife that we encountered during our morning photo safari into Riding Mountain National Park. A lost gosling, a white-tailed deer buck feeding, whose antlers were in velvet, young bison calves, some beautiful footage of our bird of Manitoba – the great gray owl, and a gray catbird singing its heart out…be patient; it will take a few seconds to load, as it is saved for high speed broadband viewing.
