Wildlife Biologist Fauve Blanchard on the importance of the session.
Fish and wildlife officers and biologists will be on hand to talk to participants. There will also be refreshments available.

Drayton Valley’s Dawson Posts The Blue Jays Have Cut Him
A roster move for the Blue Jays. It appears that the organization has cut ties with Drayton Valley’s Shane Dawson.
The 24 year old prospect had toiled around Double A (New Hampshire) ball the last two years, with mixed results.
Dawson posted on his social media that his time with the club had ended. It’s unclear if he’ll pursue another contract elsewhere. The southpaw was a 17th round pick of Toronto in 2012.
