Phoenix on the Fly

On June 18, despite threats of flooding, Phoenix Folks were off on an adventure.

We traveled down to Coaldale and the Birds of Prey Foundation.

Active since 1982 and more recently a registered charity, the Alberta Birds of Prey Foundation is Alberta’s first privately licensed raptor rescue and conservation organization. We are located two hours south of Calgary in the heart of Canada’s wild prairies. For more information, check out their site –

And then the duck chased us!


Next we were off to the Japanese Gardens in Lethbridge.

The Nikka Yuko Japanese Garden offers you an unforgettable experience, combining the beauty of nature in a serene setting. From the first spring blossom to the final autumn leaf, the Garden is an oasis of tranquility.  To learn more about them, check out their site –
