  • Bunchberry Meadows

    Bunchberry Meadows is a very special place. Located approximately 30 kilometres outside of downtown Edmonton, this 640-acre (260-hectare) conservation site is made up of old-growth forests, open meadows and wetlands. The forest supports jack pine, which is habitat for northern flying squirrels, porcupines and long-tailed weasels. The water and willows shelter a variety of species as small as tiger salamander and as large as moose.

    Owned in partnership with the Edmonton and Area Land Trust, Bunchberry Meadows is open to the public year-round for foot access.

    To estimate the number of users on Bunchberry Meadows, NCC is using trail counters supplied from TRAFx.

    Carpool Cost: The event coordinator(s) will help you to arrange a centralized carpool if you require it, but it's not guaranteed. Please DO NOT pay your driver en route. Passengers will pay the coordinator, and he/she will distribute the money to the carpool drivers. SO PLEASE BRING CASH!!! Approximate vehicle expense for this event is $6.21 (calculated at total Km * $0.23, effective Sunday, August 19, 2018). This is based on $0.09/Km for maintenance, plus current gas price divided by 9. This cost will be multiplied by the number of carpooled cars, and divided by the number of carpool participants.
