Build part of your visit to Prince Albert National Park around a guided interpretive event or take advantage of the self-guided trails or Nature Centre.

These programs  help you make sense of the creatures and multitude of ecological relationships which make up the beautiful and fragile northern forests and lakes you'll encounter during your visit.

Public programs are offered from end of June to the end of September.
