Helen Schuler Coulee Centre

The Helen Schuler Coulee Centre LodgeThe Helen Schuler Coulee Centre is surrounded by the 196 acre Lethbridge Nature Reserve. In the Nature Reserve, the floodplain of the Oldman River supports a lush cottonwood forest. The forest is home to porcupines, deer, Great Horned Owls and a multitude of songbirds. In contrast, Prickly Pear Cactus and other desert-like plants grow on the dry coulee slopes. Across the river, the Elizabeth Hall Wetlands offers excellent wildlife-viewing opportunities. Here visitors can watch Painted Turtles, Beaver and a variety of water birds.

Kids enjoying the Helen Schuler Coulee CentreInterpretive programs, hands-on exhibits and self-guided nature trails encourage visitors to experience and learn about Lethbridge's diverse natural ecosystems. Knowledgeable staff and volunteer naturalists are on hand to provide natural history information. Open Year Round - call for seasonal hours.
