Toadfest 2018 at Summit Lake

This free, fun, family event, organized by the Fish & Wildlife Compensation Program, raises awareness of the Western Toad and the other species that call the area home. Come and learn about the toad’s natural history, life cycle, and habitat needs, and check out the other local live animals on display.

Adult toads typically migrate in early spring to breed at Summit Lake. The dime-size toadlets migrate from Summit Lake to upland habitat in the summer.

If there are toadlets in Summit Lake Provincial Park during Toadfest, visitors will get the opportunity carry them safely across the highway. The public are reminded not to collect and move the toadlets across the highway outside of this event.

Thanks to our Toadfest partners: B.C. Parks, and the Ministry of Forests, Lands, Natural Resource Operations & Rural Development.
