The park features many outstanding natural wonders and cultural treasures, including the only fully protected white pelican nesting colony in Canada, the isolated, lakeside cabin of conservationist Grey Owl and a free-ranging herd of plains bison.During a visit, enjoy special events and interpretive programs that help you make more connections with the patterns and processes of this ecosystem.The townsite of Waskesiu, located in the park, provides extensive services for visitors.
A blanket of snow has just fallen and the park is as wintry as ever! Picture-perfect and lots to explore by skis and snowshoes. Here are some updates and reminders for the winter season. Please feel free to share with colleagues, tourism partners, and the public.
