Experience the solitude and wonder of the Southern Saskatchewan prairie landscape by day or night. Evidence of those who came before us is at your feet. Dinosaur fossils, the mass extinction boundary, hearth sites, tipi rings, bison drive lanes, and cellar depressions set among today’s living prairie.

Découvrez la tranquillité et les merveilles des paysages des prairies du sud de la Saskatchewan, de jour comme de nuit. Les témoignages de ceux qui nous ont précédés se trouvent à vos pieds. Vous pourrez observer des fossiles de dinosaures, la limite d’une extinction massive, des sites de foyers, des cercles de tipis, des couloirs de bisons et des caves au cœur des prairies animées.
