big horn sheep in Radium

When you think of Radium Hot Springs, the bighorn sheep are likely what come to mind right after the hot springs and the gorgeous Columbia Valley.

The sheep have been a main attraction in the Village of Radium Hot Springs for decades, so the town celebrates the local wildlife, which have drawn visitors from around the world.

Read our preview of this year's photo workshop with Dax Justin.

From Nov. 3-5, enjoy the Headbanger Festival and learn just what makes the male bighorn sheep rut. Learn about their habitat and habits through informative talks with Bighorn Sheep enthusiasts, interpretive hikes and photography workshops.
