Interpretive programs

Develop a deeper connection just outside Alberta’s capital city. Parks Canada interpreters will help you create memories and inspire connections to Elk Island National Park through a variety of daily programming. We engage, entertain, and educate, while helping you experience all Elk Island has to offer.

  • Feel a fuzzy bison pelt
  • Travel back in time with archaeological activities that bring history to life
  • Discover a new world by peering into the underwater world off our living boardwalk or staring up in wonder at a starry night sky
  • Get hands on and experience Indigenous culture with Cree crafting workshops
