It’s the Fall, which means that wildlife are abundant in our area getting ready for the cold months by filling their bellies as much as possible before hibernation or heading down South. One of the biggest attractions of the Canadian Rockies is the wildlife, especially large mammals such as elk, moose, bighorn sheep, and bears, which are widespread and easily viewed in our area. All these animals are wild, so precautions need to be taken to not disrupt their environment and to not interfere with their activity.
The Little Badgers, an early learning centre in Windermere visited Fairmont Hot Springs Resort to plant flowers in their creative pots they decorated. Before heading into the Greenhouse at Riverside Golf Course they delighted us with a song they learnt all about the growing process. Jessica Pemberton, our Resorts Horticulturalist guided the children into the Greenhouse, a place many of them had never been before. At first sight, they thought they were at the wrong place as the Greenhouse was not literally a green house as most of them expected.
One talented lady is responsible for all things beautiful throughout the resort over the summer months. Our resort's Horticultural Technician, Jessica Pemberton has been spending her time at the Greenhouse on Riverside Golf Course caring for each and every tiny seed that will soon become bright and colourful flowers, covering every inch of the Golf Courses and Lodge property.
