The Canadian mountain parks are known for their natural beauty, and the wildflowers of Waterton Lakes National Park are particularly breathtaking. You can view the stunning beauty for yourself during the 12th Annual Waterton Wildflower Festival. From June 19-27, 2015, the Waterton Park Community Association will hold more than 80 workshops on photography and art, guided walks on plant identification and park ecosystems, family programs, lunchtime and evening photographic presentations and local entertainment. The events will be led by highly qualified professionals, and you won’t want to miss them. Make your reservations online today! Here’s a list of a few of the activities:
- Wildflower Photography and Painting
- Wildflower Identification
- Wildflower Connections
- Wildflowers by Horseback and by Cruise and even by canoe

Remember to set aside some time to enjoy the scenery and explore the park. Waterton Lakes National Park is home to 1,000 vascular plant species, including half of all wildflower species found in Alberta. Some of the species are rare, so getting to view them is a special treat!
