Field Programs for Students

A Kananaskis Conservation Pass is required to park your vehicle in Kananaskis and the Bow Valley.
Ice Safety: Alberta Parks does not monitor ice conditions; learn how to assess them for yourself at the Canadian Red Cross.

The Environmental Education program in Kananaskis Country is currently taking bookings for all 2022-23 winter programs. Spring program requests open on January 2, 2023. Programs will be modified, as needed, to meet the requirements of Alberta Health Services, school protocols and to meet teacher needs.
