It is also a meeting place or transition zone between the parkland and
northern forest. The park features many outstanding natural wonders and
cultural treasures, including the only fully protected white pelican
nesting colony in Canada, the isolated, lakeside cabin of
conservationist Grey Owl and a free-ranging herd of plains bison.

ecosystem. The townsite of Waskesiu, located in the park, provides
extensive services for visitors.

Parks & National Historic Sites of Canada in Saskatchewan (pdf)
- Welcome to an exciting journey through your choice of national parks
and national historic sites in Saskatchewan. Your imagination will be
your guide… The earth yields tales of lives past, from whiskey cellars
to fox dens, from riflepits to prairie dog homes. Water washes over
leaky scows and spawning beds; it carries troops, fuels forts and gives
birth to dragonflies. The air rings with fiddle and song and the
chortle of an eagle. Fire re-grows northern forest, rips through
settler homes, warms campers and bakes bannock. Whether exploring
barnyard, battlefield or boreal forest, you can write your own future
memories. Retrace the route of Mistahimaskwa also known as Big Bear,
listen to wolves howl, find out what stooking is, taste mint along a
wild river, rub a buffalo rubbing stone, smell an old leather harness
and see the forever of a prairie sky.
