Cochrane Ranche is home to many beautiful wild creatures. The children explore this wildlife habitat area and are fortunate to have the opportunity to see wildlife on our outings including deer, moose, coyote, fox, garter snakes, skunk, porcupine, beaver, fish, bats... They are taught to respect wild animal's privacy by observing at a safe distance with an educator.
Bears and cougars also make their way through the Ranche at times. The children are taught how to respond in the event we encounter either. We also travel closely together as a large noisy group, and adhere to public safety notices avoiding areas where there have been sightings.
