The Canada Goose, native to North America, is a commonly seen symbol of Canada, easily recognized by its black head and neck with a white 'chinstrap'. As autumn rolls in and the air turns crisp, the Columbia Valley and the wetlands near Fairmont Hot Springs Resort become busy with migrating geese. Declining numbers in the 1950's and an estimated 1 million geese population in North America, has been revived with wildlife management. The Canada Goose is now flourishing and researchers have estimated there are more than 8 million Canada Geese in North America today.
When you visit Fairmont Hot Springs Resort please be aware that bears live in the area.
