Event description

About this Event

The Evergreen Learning and Innovation Society (ELIS) and Ducks Unlimited Canada’s National Boreal Program (DUC) are collaborating to establish a Wetland Centre at Evergreen Park, located in the County of Grande Prairie, Alberta. The Wetland Centre will be an outdoor, hands-on centre that can be used for wetlands related training, research, and industry demonstrations. Learn more about the Wetland Centre project here.
