Birding: The Lesser Slave Lake region is a designated Important Bird Area. Up to 20% of the western population of tundra swans stop to feed on the lake.

The area has an incredible concentration and diversity of migrant songbirds, including yellow warbler, bay-breasted warbler and red-eyed vireo. A Songbird Festival is held in the park each spring.
