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 a bird watcher's paradise. Be it for wildlife viewing, hiking, cross-country skiing, picnicking or overnight camping, there is something for everyone at Elk Island National Park.

Digitized Material: The digitized material from the Parks Canada fonds consists of photographs of Ukrainian pioneers who settled near the Elk Island National Park in Alberta.
