Located less than an hour away from Edmonton, Alberta, Elk Island National Park protects the wilderness of the aspen parkland, one of the most endangered habitats in Canada. This beautiful oasis is home to herds of free roaming plains bison, wood bison, moose, deer, and elk. Also boasting over 250 species of birds, the park is ideal for bird watchers. Other recreational activities within the park are wildlife viewing, hiking, cross-country skiing, picnicking and overnight camping. The digitized material from the Parks Canada fonds consists of photographs of Ukrainian pioneers who settled near the Elk Island National Park in Alberta.
