Spring migration is here! 

Spring is in the air and the migratory waterfowl are already arriving at Lesser Slave Lake. So our Spring Migration Monitoring program will be starting up in mid-April so that we can make sure to record all those early migratory songbirds already on their way to their boreal forest breeding grounds. This will be our 31st year of avian migration monitoring at Slave Lake! 

2023 Annual Report: If you want to refresh your memory on last season, you can check out our 2023 Annual Report with all the highlights and recaps from last year. And of course, the Weekly Reports from the station will keep you informed of all the exciting things happening there throughout the season.
