We live in a wildlife corridor and can expect to share the area, especially the river valley, with many animals. We are fortunate to live in an area that has great biodiversity in the species that call this area home. Respecting these wild animals is key to maintaining their diversity and a healthy ecosystem.
General Tips About Wildlife
Remember to slow down for wildlife!
It is important NOT to:
- feed any wild animal
- approach any wild animal
- distribute bird feed in parks or natural areas
Please remember not to feed or approach wildlife. Predators like coyotes and cougars are most active at dusk and dawn. Be cautious in the river valley, especially at these times, or avoid the area.
If you spot a cougar or bear, please call Parks at 403-938-8958 and Report-A-Poacher at 1-800-642-3800; this line is monitored 24/7. If you are under attack by a wild animal call 9-1-1.
