Keen to gain some DIY construction skills? Volunteer your elbow grease to improve Stoney Creek Park and trail system for skiers and runners at the Augustana Day of Service.
Boost your building skills on a fence-replacement project along the trail. Get your hands dirty constructing a wooden ramp for maintenance equipment. After lunch, hear about the formation, ecology and conservation of Alberta’s wetlands from Carolyn Cook, University of Alberta student and Camrose Wildlife Stewardship Society co-ordinator. Walk through the Stoney Creek area to see local examples of erosion and wildlife.
This event is open to alumni and their guests.
