    Natural Region Description

    Bob Creek Wildland preserves extensive montane and sub-alpine landscapes. It provides excellent habitat for large ungulates; the area contains one of Alberta's most important elk ranges. Carnivores in the area include bears and cougars. The park also provides habitat for numerous species of birds. It's estimated that more than 80 bird species breed in the area and many more use the park during fall migration. Bob Creek Wildland also includes Whaleback Ridge, considered to be Alberta's last remaining area of montane wilderness.
