Winter Camp

BEE-aMAZEd – winter themed maze

Arborist and wood carver DOUG LINGELBACH and LAURA HALE , community artist, have created a maze that includes scenes you might come across walking along the Meewasin Trail.

Discover the five activity nodes throughout the maze, as well as carved wooden animals,  by Lingelbach, and ice sculptures by Fire and Ice.

Check out the animal carvings.  Did you know…….

  • That the Beaver is active all winter long? One of the ways they prepare for winter is by putting a large pile of branches under water near their lodge. The beavers consume the bark of the branches as a winter food. The food pile is known as a food cache.
  • Rabbits and hares are different in a number of ways. For example, hares have the ability to turn their fur coat from brown to white to better camouflage with their winter surroundings. Rabbits sport the same coat colour year round.
  • The Lake Sturgeon is a fish found in the South Saskatchewan River. It is one of Canada’s largest freshwater fish. It has been documented that some sturgeon may live up to 150 years of age but this very uncommon today.
  • Most owls are nocturnal predators that use a variety of adaptations to aid in their hunt. Masters of camouflage owls generally fly silently, capturing their prey with sharp deadly talons. There are 13 species of owls in Saskatchewan including 2 rare or accidental species.

ALL WEEK! Take your photo on the Beaver bench. And come at night to see the northern lights!

Use a crazy carpet to take a cruise down the snow hill.
