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.
