Paget Lookout – Getting Connected
High on a mountain slope in Yoho National Park, whitebark pines stand their ground against the elements – strong winds, snow and cold. This tree is tough. As tough as this tree is, it is declining throughout its range. Learn how it provides habitat for other animals, stabilizes slopes and holds onto the snow pack, making water available for other plants.
While you are at the site, you will walk among whitebark and limber pine trees, both species at risk, and take part in research that is helping protect them.
Parks Canada Heritage Interpreters offer seasonal guided hikes and will show you how to use the iNaturalist app to assist in citizen – science data collection for projects across Canada.
Reservations are required.
