Riding Mountain is home to a staggering diversity of living things. The windswept grasslands and deep, silent forests, of secretive wolf packs, of orchids and lilies, of lakes and wetlands singing with life. Riding Mountain National Park is in Treaty 2 Territory, where we work with Anishinabe, First Nations from treaties 2, 4, and 1. We honour, acknowledge, and recognize Indigenous contributions to the park, the province, and Canada.

Le mont Riding : le sentiment d’être chez soi. C’est là que la vie a élu domicile : les terres balayées par le vent, les forêts profondes et silencieuses, les meutes de loups furtives, les orchidées et les lys, les lacs et les terres humides – ils chantent tous un hymne à la vie. Le parc national du Mont-Riding est situé dans le territoire visé par le Traité no 2 où nous travaillons avec les Anishinabe, les Premières Nations signataires des traités no 2, 4 et 1. Nous reconnaissons la contribution des peuples autochtones dans l’établissement du parc, de la province et du Canada, et nous y rendons hommage.
