Voluteer to Be a Tour Guide

Snow Goose Festival welcome volunteer tour guides for the various bus tours and field hikes scheduled during the Snow Goose Festival.  We hope to have two guides per tour – guides with birding knowledge or familiarity of the birding areas around Tofield/Beaverhill Lake are requested! Tours depart from Festival Headquarters at Tofield Arena unless otherwise specified.   Opportunities available on Saturday and/or Sunday.  Volunteers are welcome to sign up for multiple tours during the weekend.


Confirmed guides will be invited to participate in one of two orientation sessions to be held via zoom prior to the Snow Goose Festival that will provide more information for the guides about obtaining maps, sightings, and other areas of interest to assist in the tours.

2-  and 3- hour Bus Tour Guides tours depart Snow Goose Festival Headquarters  (Tofield Arena:  4748 – 53 Ave.)

Volunteer tour guides required on several 2-hour and 3-hour bus tours held during the Snow Goose Festival on both Saturday and Sunday to areas around Beaverhill Lake / Beaver County to view Snow Geese and other migratory birds & wildlife.  While similar in nature, the three hour tour provides the opportunity for extended viewing including stops at hot-spots for birdwatching.  Tour Guides should be knowledgeable birders able to interpret birds and signs of wildlife to bus passengers while leading the tour.    Prior to the tour, guides should obtain tour route and snow geese sightings information from the information booth at the Snow Goose Festival.
