Trek around Telford Lake
TELFORD LAKE TRAILS (LEDUC, AB)
Spring has sprung – especially around Telford Lake! Make the most of the warm weather by taking a spring break stroll in this picturesque part of Leduc. Off-trail adventures will likely ensue, so make sure to bring boots (spring melt = muddy areas around the lake). Spring is an excellent time for bird-watching at Telford, so keep an eye on the sky for birds migrating back for the summer, and a camera nearby to snap some quick pics.
Did you know Telford Lake has ten interpretive signs that can be found at different points along the lake trail? Turn your outdoor outing into an educational “Easter Hunt” by finding these signs and learning about the diversity of species in the area.

Farm Fresh Food for Easter
EAST GATE FARMS (LEDUC COUNTY, AB)
Looking to make your Easter feast extra special? You can do exactly that AND support the regional economy by purchasing farm fresh food directly from local producers!
Want an easy example? Look no further than East Gate Farms – they have farm fresh eggs available for pickup Monday – Friday from 9:00 AM – 5:30 PM. Contact the farm directly to set up a time that works best for you! Farm fresh eggs for Sunday morning Easter brunch or baking? YES PLEASE!
Imagine if there was one easy-to-access, central location where you could find regional producers (just like East Gate Farms), learn about what products they have to offer, and how you can buy them? Well… We launched exactly that last week!
