Natural Region Description

Pembina River Provincial Park is located near the towering Pembina River gorge. The gorge which has cliffs as high as 62 metres, was created by meltwaters from the retreat of glaciers during the Wisconsin Age. The Pembina River within the park has cut through the brown sandstone of the Paskapoo Formation and the underlying shale and siltstone of the Edmonton Formation. The gorge offers an interesting view of these geological features.
