Prince Albert National Park of Canada protects a slice of the northern coniferous or 'boreal' forest. The park lies in a transition zone between natural regions, with a diversity of wildlife. The park contains many outstanding natural and cultural features, including the only fully protected white pelican nesting colony in Canada, rare fescue grasslands, free-ranging plains bison and the isolated lakeside cabin of conservationist Grey Owl. A rich Indigenous history in the area dates back over 8000 years.

History

Prince Albert National Park was established in 1927 but this place has a long history of human activity and is highly regarded for its spiritual and cultural values by many peoples.
