Starting in 2017 ALG members decided to have an annual weekend-or-so long camping trip somewhere in Alberta so that members could meet, socialize and most importantly have a chance to see wild Lepidoptera in places they might not usually visit. The 2017 trip was a huge success and a definite adventure, hence the name.
Non-members are welcome, but we don’t publicly publish details of the trips in advance. Members recieve full information well in advance through ALG’s secure email. If you’d like to attend, but aren’t an ALG member, contact the ALG President or become a member by contacting the ALG Treasurer.
The 2020 ALG Adventure was planned for Dilberry Lake Provincial Park, but was cancelled due to Covid concerns/restrictions. We’re hoping to get there in 2021…
The 2019 ALG Adventure was June 14-16 in Medicine Hat, Alberta. A special thanks to Jan Scott, long time ALG member and Medicine Hat resident for local coordination. Overall a great time. Read the full acount in the ALG Fall 2019 Newsletter.
The 2018 ALG Adventure was to the Plateau Mountain and Hailstone Butte area of SW Alberta. Mountain butterflies! Up and down & some hail! Great fun! Read the full account in the ALG Fall 2018 Newsletter.
2017 saw the first “official” ALG Adventure to the town of Rowley with Lepidoptera investigations in nearby habitats. Permits were obtained for collecting and a report was filed with Alberta Tourism, Park and Recreation, Parks Division. More information on the trip can be found in the ALG Fall 2017 Newsletter.
