Fish Creek Provincial Park

Alberta Parks

The "Nature" of Science

Day Use is permitted. Outhouse facilities are open where feasible - be prepared with your own hand sanitizer and toilet paper. Campgrounds open, starting June 1 at 50% capacity. Second RV units will not be permitted on campsites. We are monitoring our actions to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and will adjust as needed.

Students work in "scientific teams" to examine interactions, abiotic and biotic features of three distinct ecosystems - grassland, aspen parkland and boreal forest.  Students also explore how human impacts have influenced these ecosystems.
