|Natural Region Description|
Stretching along the south bank of the Peace River from Dunvegan to the B.C. border, this park includes a unique mixture of grassland, aspen forest and steep-sided creek valleys. Many of the plants and birds here are more typical of the Parkland Natural Region located far to the south. Dunvegan West contains hoodoos and fossil beds. Its bedrock cliffs are home to nesting bald eagles, golden eagles and falcons. Red-sided and wandering garter snakes den along the river. South-facing slopes support typical parkland vegetation, with clones of aspen, shrubs, and grassland communities. Cacti are found on some of the drier sites. The valleys are key year-round habitat for deer and elk.
