Alberta Provincial Parks and Protected Areas

Alberta's parks and protected areas network preserves, for all time, landscapes and natural features that represent the environmental diversity of our province. The network includes more than 500 sites and encompasses over 2 million hectares.

Alberta is renowned for it's natural beauty and diversity. Landscapes vary from hot dry badlands, to vast unbroken forests, to alpine tundra and massive icefields. These landscapes are divided into six distinctly different natural regions, each with a variety of sub-regions. This scientific framework is the basis of our parks and protected areas network.

Many of the staff at Parks and Protected Areas have donated their time and effort to make our web site as brilliant as possible. For that, we thank them! Specifically, we would like to thank our main contact, Ted Ritzer.
