Toadfest 2020 hops online!

There may not be a Toadfest at Summit Lake Provincial Park this year, but we are bringing the event online! There will be two free Toadfest events this year: one for kids and one for adults. Get an update on the ongoing work to help Western toads at Summit Lake, check out some cool videos and photos, and talk to a biologist. There will be games for the kids and much more.

Register for either session by emailing and let us know which session you’ll be attending. If you have any questions, call Angus Glass at 250-352-1300.

This event is sponsored by the FWCP with support from the Ministry of Forests, Lands, Natural Resource Operations and Rural Development.

Kids:               Wednesday, August 26, 12:30–1:30 p.m. PDT

Find out the difference between toads and frogs, see how fast a toad can move, check out our mascot Toady, play some games, see some videos, and talk to a biologist.

Adults:                 Thursday, August 27, 12:30–1:30 p.m. PDT

Learn about the monitoring techniques and mitigation measures implemented at Summit Lake, and find out about the latest results. Test your knowledge of Western toads and other amphibians, and watch some videos.
