PRINCE AL­BERT NATONAL PARK

Grey Owl called it one of Canada’s great­est wilder­ness play­grounds. Saskatchewan’s largest pro­tected area is al­most smack in the cen­tre of the prov­ince, pre­serv­ing a tran­si­tion zone from south­ern aspen park­land and fes­cue grass­lands to north­ern bo­real for­est. Al­most a third of the park is wa­ter, with huge lakes, small ponds, rivers and streams and wildlife-rich wet­lands ga­lore. Ca­noe­ing and other wa­ter­sports are es­pe­cially pop­u­lar. Tiny Ajawaan Lake is where Canada’s fa­mous con­ser­va­tion­ist, Grey Owl, lived, worked, wrote his best­selling books and was fi­nally buried. The hike or ca­noe trip to his cabin is a pil­grim­age to the home of a Cana­dian icon
