The Parks / Saskatchewan / Prince Albert National Park



 

Prince Albert National Park is located within the Southern Boreal Plains and Plateau natural region as identified by the national parks system plan where the combination of prairie, deciduous forest and boreal forest forms a distinctive Canadian habitat, unique the world over. The dry southwestern corner of the park is dominated by aspen parkland featuring trembling aspen groves and a significant portion of Canada’s remaining rough fescue grasslands. Once widespread throughout the Canadian prairie provinces, the grasslands have been reduced by forest invasion and farmland utilization of their nutrient- rich soils. Bordering the aspen parkland is a zone of mixed wood forest of coniferous and deciduous species that occur throughout the park. In the northern reaches, boreal forests dominated by black spruce muskeg and tamarack thrive in the damp, poorly drained bogs, which have more rainfall and a lower average temperature with less evaporation than the surrounding prairies.
