A Wetland Centre for Everyone


On Wednesday October 4th 2022, crowds gathered just outside of Grande Prairie Alberta to learn about the wonderful world of wetlands in their own backyard at the Wetland Centre at Evergreen Park’s first ever Open House. Ducks Unlimited Canada’s National Boreal Program, who manages the site, planned this day to create a way for people from all backgrounds to spend time in a local wetland, learning the characteristics of swamps, fens, bogs, and marshes, as well as walking alongside Indigenous Elder Barbara Goodswimmer from Sturgeon Lake Cree Nation learning the value of plants and their histories, immersing themselves in demonstrations displaying the different ways that industry can operate sustainably on the landscape, learning about community science, and offering feedback on their hopes for the future of the site.
