Following the success of the inaugural event in 2016, Critter Day returned to Beaver Creek Provincial Park, south of Trail, on Saturday, May 13th, 2017. Co-organized by the KCP and the Fish and Wildlife Compensation Program (FWCP), Critter Day gave all ages the chance to get up close and personal with some local amphibians, snakes, reptiles, aquatic bugs, fish, insects, butterflies and much more. Biologists were on hand to answer any questions, and juvenile white sturgeon were also on display before being released into the Columbia River — definitely the highlight of this year’s event.
This free, fun family event for the general public is aimed to increase awareness of the special ecosystems in the Trail and Pend D’Oreille region and share information about the unique and at-risk plants and animals that call them home.
Thanks to our participating partners and everyone who came out — see you next year!
