Natural Region Description

Don Getty Wildland Park consists of a number of parcels of land that add ecological integrity to adjacent protected areas in the vicinity of Kananaskis Country. The park contains several important features including Forget-Me-Not Ridge, which provides spectcular views and one of the deepest known caves in Alberta. There are exceptional examples of several well-preserved periglacial features in the park - felsenmeer, stone stripes and stone polygons. These periglacial features are well preserved, with little disturbance from industrial activity and recreational use. The Plateau-Cataract area of the park includes Cataract Creek, one of Alberta's finest walk-in trout fishing streams.
