If you come during this time of year, you will find snow still on the ground in many places, but with green blades of grass poking through and new buds on all the branches. It is a magical time of rebirth in the mountains! Often still very empty with few visitors before the warmth of summer days.

Baby animals are being born, bears are coming out of hibernation and many animals in the park are ready to forage for food after the long, hard winter. Bears wake up hungry after winter in the high country of the Canadian Rockies. Spring mushrooms and dandelions are some of the first plants to grow, and bears find these delicious! Beside the highways and roads in Mount Robson Park are fields of yellow dandelions, which a foraging bear will quickly devour as he moves through the area and munches the tops off the flowers. It’s hard to imagine that a cow would do a better or faster job than the hungry bear!
