City Relocating Beavers from Annex Park

The City of Fernie has hired a professional trapping service to relocate beavers from the Annex Park. The beavers are creating safety issues in the area as they damage trees producing the potential hazard of trees falling on people who are enjoying the park and adjacent trail. You may notice increased activity in the Annex Park over the coming days as this work is completed.

This initiative is being undertaken in consultation with the Ministry of Environment and is being conducted during the permitted relocation window specified by Provincial regulations.
