Ministik Berg & NCC Trails (afternoon)
June 26 @ 3:15 pm – 7:00 pm MDT
This will be an afternoon hike. The hike is through the Ministik Bird Sanctuary and a bit beyond, much of which is the ‘Ball Berg’ section recently donated to the Nature Conservancy of Canada by the Ball family. This is of course a good chance to see birds, including waterfowl, as well as beaver. A small camera with a zoom lens or lightweight binoculars would be handy. The pictures from June 20th, 2021.
We’ll meet from the trail head on “A89A” on Range Road 210 (1 km off Hwy 14, there is a new driveway across the road from “A89A’ & they have both Alberta & Canadian flags) at 3:15 p.m.. The hike will leave from ‘A89A’ at 3:30 where we will go past several small lakes towards & the ‘Berg Stopover’ and Delaney (from the Nature Conservancy of Canada & on the WTA executive) will also take us through some of the NCC extensions to trail that we have not have previously explored.
