Lesser Slave Lake Region is one of the largest pristine wilderness areas in Alberta. Nestled in the scenic Provincial Park, the Lesser Slave Lake Bird Observatory is the ideal place for wildlife viewing.
Depending upon the season, bird-watchers will see several species of migratory songbirds, the common raven, bald eagles, geese, rare trumpeter swans, numerous species of ducks, sharped-tailed grouse, spruce grouse and ruffled grouse. We also have willow ptarmigan, gray jay and boreal chickadee and several species of woodpeckers.
Mammals include boreal bison, moose, elk, woodland caribou, bears, cougars, timber wolves, fox, martin, wolverine and squirrels, snowshoe hare and lynx. The Boreal Centre for Bird Conservation also provides a variety of interpretive and educational exhibits, events, and programs. Bring your camera and get set for an unforgettable adventure.
