Whitebark Pine Outreach

Learn more about our Roots

 

Did you know Kicking Horse is home to an endangered species of tree called the Whitebark Pine?

This important species is declining at a staggering rate in the area due to an invasive species of fungus known as White Pine blister rust.  To help the conservation of these trees, we have teamed up with the Whitebark Pine Ecosystem Foundation of Canada and have already planted over 4000 Whitebark Pine trees!

 

Parks Canada will be in the plaza with an information booth to talk about Whitebark Pine conservation. Along with the booth there will be displays including cones, cone cages, climbing gear, a GIANT SLING SHOT, and other education tools.

 

We will also be doing a guided tour of Kicking Horse’s Whitebark Pines along CPR Ridge with a host from Parks Canada and the Grizzly Bear Refuge.

If you are interested in joining the guided hike, please be sure to be at the base of the Gondola for 11:00 am. The hike will be approximately 2 hours long.
