Critter Day


It’s free!

Each year, KCP partners with the Fish and Wildlife Compensation Program (FWCP) to host “Critter Day” at Beaver Creek Provincial Park near Trail. 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, share information about the unique and at-risk plants and animals that call these ecosystems home, and educate the general public and landowners on the importance and fragility of the habitat in the area.
