Observe animals and how they live in the winter at the Omega Park in Montebello. Watch them in their natural habitats from your car as you drive along the trail that takes you to see the deer, wapiti, elk and other animals. Keep your eyes open to spot them! If you find wolves fascinating, don’t forget to stop by the observatory, where you can meet a guide who will tell you everything you want to know about these intriguing canines. A walkway lets you access a spectacular view of the wolves below so that you can catch a glimpse of them in their most natural state. On site you can also explore the snowshoeing trails and attend a number of demonstrations to learn more about the species that live at the park.
