The Trembling Aspen gets its name from how its leaves quake in the wind. Their specialized leaves reduce aerodynamic drag and prevent damage to branch and trunk during high winds. They also have photosynthetic bark which enable them to grow during winter even after their leaves have dropped.
Selkirk Moose need multiple habitat types depending on the season. They stay cool in lakes and ponds throughout the summer and love high-elevation mixed forests (coniferous and deciduous). Moose are the largest species in the deer family and get their name from the Algonquian language.
