Prince Albert National Park
is located 200 kilometres north of Saskatoon close
to the centre of the province of Saskatchewan.
A 3875 square kilometre park on the southern edge
of Canadas great boreal forest, it is a
transition zone featuring diverse plant
life and a landscape
dominated by the effects of glaciation. Established
in 1927, its most famous resident was Grey
Owl who used the park as a home base between
1931 and 1938. Archaeological evidence and oral
histories suggest that aboriginal cultures
inhabited the region for at least 6000 years.
