Dickson Dam Site 7 – Nature Walk – August 14, 2021
Today we were honored to have Maggie, a local Indigenous elder from Red Deer, join us to explore Dickson Dam Site 7 Conservation Site west of Innisfail. Indigenous teachings included Shaye honoring Grandfather Sun, Grandmother Moon, Father Sky & Mother Earth in all four cardinal directions before guiding the group down the path to explore the diversity of the area. This natural area is a mixed-wood forest being dominated mainly by white spruce with mature trembling aspen. An old fisher skull was found in the area that appeared to be caught in a trap many, many years prior. Thank you everyone who was able to join us!
