What's Up With Horns and Hooves.
> Friday Dec 10, 2021 at 10:00 am - 3:00 pm
Alberta is home to many wild species that sport horns, hooves - or both! These characteristics are unique to Alberta's ungulates - moose, elk, caribou, pronghorns, deer, bison, sheep, and goats. Their hooves help them to travel on hard, rocky, or snowy terrain. Their horns and antlers are used for defence and to find a mate. Ungulates are year-round residents in Alberta. Visit investigation stations hosted by volunteers and partner organizations to learn more about Alberta's wild ungulates. Learners of all ages and abilities are welcome!
