Waterton Wildlife Weekend 2017 - Cancelled
About this Festival
Parks Canada has decided to issue an evacuation order of Waterton Lakes National Park, due to the Kenow Fires. Due to the uncertainty of when we will be able to get back into the park we have decided to cancel this years Wildlife Weekend. We would like to thank all of those that wanted to come and bought tickets this year. We will continue on next year!
Considered the hidden jewel in the Crown of the Continent, Waterton Lakes National Park is the meeting place where multiple ecosystems converge and where the mountains meet the prairies in a stunning visual collision.
Because of these geological and ecological factors, Waterton holds immense wildlife diversity. For its size of just over 505 sq. kilometers, Waterton Lakes National Park holds the most wildlife diversity than any other national park in Canada. In fact, it is very rare to not see some sort of wildlife in Waterton, whether it be a white-tailed deer, big horn sheep, or black bear.
Out of multitude of questions and general curiosity about the diversity of wildlife in Waterton, the Waterton Wildlife Weekend was born.
Join us September 22nd to September 24th, 2017 to learn all about the animals living in the Rocky Mountains and the prairies.
Please check out the Waterton Wildflower Festival which takes place every year in June.
