Alberta's Heartland

Discover central Alberta, the Heartland of the province, a place that celebrates its roots and maintains a close relationship with the land. Visit the Ukrainian Cultural Heritage Village east of Edmonton, where costumed interpreters recreate the daily routines of Ukrainian pioneers. This in one of the most fertile regions of the province, and the importance of agriculture is evident in the multi-hued rolling landscape of late summer. At the region's many rodeos, rugged individualists compete in heart-stopping events like bull-riding. Travel into the Valley of Dinosaurs, one of the worlds' richest fossil beds and home to the Royal Tyrell Museum of Palaeontology. Visit the many community museums for an in-depth look at the Heartland's settlement. Stop at any of the region's famous parks, such as the Red Deer's Kerry Wood Nature Centre, for a picnic and nature walk, and drink in the many natural wonders of the Heartland.
