May Flower Count
This initiative is aligned with Nature Alberta’s May species count that they have been doing annually since 1976. Their count, which usually occurs towards the end of May/early June includes counts of flowering plants, birds, and sometimes mammals.
The purpose behind the May Flower Count is to help track climate driven changes in the number of flowering plants in areas across Alberta.
This year, we held our first one in Weaselhead Park and recorded 39 Flowering Species!
