Animal Tracking in the Wild with Fort Edmonton Park

Day 10 is all about becoming one with nature. Fort Edmonton Park has created an Animal Tracking in the Wild educational kit that will help you and your family as you explore your neighbourhood, or one of the many parks and river valleys in the region. The kit also includes Indigenous Peoples’ land-based teaching topics, Cree names for many of the animals commonly found in our environment, and how to identify the footprints of our animal neighbours.

This is a great activity for your curious little adventurers.

Get started by downloading your Animal Tracking in the Wild educational kit here.

The City of St. Albert has worked with content developers to provide creative prompts that align with provincial public health measures, and guidance to protect the health system and the community by slowing the spread of COVID-19.

Fort Edmonton Park invites you to explore life through the diversity of First Nations' and Métis peoples' histories, cultures and experiences at Fort Edmonton Park’s newest exhibit, Indigenous Peoples Experience. Deep conversations with over fifty Indigenous Elders, historians, educators, and community members informed the content throughout the exhibit. The stories, music, artwork, and text in the experience come from local Indigenous perspectives and voices, gathered through engagement with local Indigenous communities, historical documents, and research.
