This is a super family-friendly walk that always offers lots to see, including Western Painted Turtles at the small floating dock in the wetlands. For a short trail, it offers a good variety of scenery and lots of wildlife. Note that dogs and bikes are not permitted in this ecologically sensitive spot where ground nesting birds are present.

Historical info

Elizabeth ‘Liz’ Hall was a member of the Lethbridge Naturalists Society, active in environmental causes in Lethbridge and involved in the Parks and Recreation and River Valley development from 1969 to 1987. She volunteered in the school system in outdoor education and to promote urban parks, energy conservation and waste management. She was active in helping develop the Helen Schuler Nature Centre. She also served on Lethbridge City Council from 1977 until 1986, when ill health forced her to resign. Elizabeth Hall Wetlands were named in her honour.

Thanks to Curtis Goodman of the Helen Schuler Nature Centre and Belinda Crowson of the Lethbridge Historical Society for contributing to the above information.
