Yield to moose cow and yearling calves

The Strathcona Wilderness Centre is habitat for several moose, including a cow moose and her yearling calves. The cow moose is protective of her yearling calves and may become concerned when the hikers on the trail separate her from her calves. Please either turn back to give the moose space or stop at least 100 metres away from them. For your safety use the rule of thumb to keep a safe distance. Extend your arm and hold your fist straight out in front of you. Extend your thumb. Cover the animal (who is standing sideways) with your thumb. If the animal is totally covered, you are about 100 metres away, which is a safe distance. If your thumb does not cover the animal, retreat slowly.

To promote a trail network, including the Trans Canada Trail, connecting all Albertans.
