So here's where the thirst for knowledge and learning comes into play. Parks Canada Interpreters will be at Marmot Meadows this winter offering fun interpretive programs for everyone to enjoy.

Join an interpreter around the fire for stories while trying your hand at new skills, like making a fire with flint and steel or cooking bannock on a stick. On some weekends we will even have hot chocolate and S'mores!

Every weekend we will offer a wildlife camera safari where you will do a bit of hiking or snowshoeing > depending on the conditions. Along the way you can practice wildlife tracking and learn how trail cameras are helping us better understand the park's wildlife.
