Celebrate 125 years of national parks in Canada

Trans Canada Trail is proud to join in the celebration of Parks Day, Saturday, July 17. Parks Canada invites all Canadians to explore our national parks, national historic sites and national marine conservation areas for free!

Check out the schedule of unique and fun events happening across the country.

Did you know that the Trans Canada Trail water route in northern Alberta and the Northwest Territories travels through Wood Buffalo National Park?  Established in 1992 to protect the endangered wood buffalo, Canada’s largest national park is now home to the world’s largest herd of free-roaming bison and the world’s only natural nesting site of the whooping crane.

UNESCO designated Wood Buffalo National Park as a World Heritage Site in 1983.
