Last Mountain Lake Bird Observatory - At the Last Mountain Lake National Wildlife Area and
Migratory Bird Sanctuary, visitors learn about the history of Canada's first wildlife
sanctuary, as well as the science of migration and population trends of species in the
area. The observatory itself contributes data to an international monitoring system for
tracking songbird populations and migration.
A new three-panel permanent sign, made possible by SaskEnergy's annual sponsorship, will
be a useful interpretive tool for visitors at the observatory.
Visiting Brownies, Guides, Cubs and Scouts were the first young people to view
the new interpretive sign.
Nature Quest - Developed in 2004, Nature Quest is a program that teaches students in grades
five to twelve about the richness of wildlife habitats and species biodiversity within
Saskatchewan's boreal forest.
Led by John Murray, a silviculture consultant with over thirty years of experience in the
Saskatchewan forestry industry, the program involves an engaging presentation and educational
dialogue that teaches students about the importance of preserving the natural diversity of
Saskatchewan's boreal region. While focused on educating youth residing in the boreal
ecoregion, Nature Quest is a mobile program available to all areas of the province.
