Attend Toadfest 2017! This fun, free family event will be at Summit Lake Provincial Park, near Nakusp, on Tuesday, Aug. 29, from 4-7 p.m., and Wednesday, Aug. 30, from 9 a.m. and 12 noon.

Come and learn about Western toad’s natural history, life cycle, and habitat needs. Check out the displays, and learn more about other animals.

Adult toads typically migrate in early spring to breed at Summit Lake. The dime-size toadlets migrate from Summit Lake to upland habitat in the summer. If there are toadlets in Summit Lake Provincial Park during Toadfest, you may get a chance to carry toadlets across the road. The public are reminded not to carry toadlets across the road, outside of this event.
