Join us for Reconnecting the Rockies: Bridging Nature and Roads on Highway 3 on Thursday, March 14. This special event is proudly brought to you by Yellowstone to Yukon Conservation Initiative (Y2Y), and Wildsight Elk Valley .

The Elk Valley is a vital corridor for grizzlies, elk, and more, connecting Banff National Park and Glacier-Waterton International Peace Park. Highway 3 is a barrier that poses challenges for wildlife here, resulting in deadly collisions. Up to 200 large animals are killed each year, and there are costs to people, too.

Join us at The Arts Station in Fernie on March 14 for an exciting in-person event to explore the fascinating world of wildlife crossings and road safety. Learn about local projects reshaping Highway 3 for both critters and commuters in both B.C. and Alberta.

Attend this free event and connect with local wildlife experts, road ecologists, and safety advocates in an insightful panel discussion about ongoing local wildlife crossing projects along Highway 3. Learn how you can be part of a solution.

This event is open to all and free, but you must RSVP to secure your spot.
