Optional excursion

After the symposium, we are offering an optional excursion to the Prince Albert National Park.

The park was established in 1927 in the southern boreal forest of Central Saskatchewan. From the park to the north edge of the province, northern forest covers almost 350 thousand square kilometers of Canadian Shield. The park landscape is dominated with the heavenly forest, rolling hills and clear water lakes.

You can enjoy the beauty of nature and solitude from city's turmoil. We will go deep into forest, watch wild animals, be relaxed on clear lakes and enjoy bog walks.


Visit the Waskesiu town site and Prince Albert Park (about 230 km north from Saskatoon). 
September 11
7 am - leave Park Town Hotel
9 pm - arrive back in Saskatoon
