Prince Albert National Park is located 200 kilometres north of Saskatoon close to the centre of the province of Saskatchewan. A 3875 square kilometre park on the southern edge of Canada’s great boreal forest, it is a transition zone featuring diverse plant and animal life and a landscape dominated by the effects of glaciation. Established in 1927, its most famous resident was Grey Owl who used the park as a home base between 1931 and 1938. Archaeological evidence and oral histories suggest that aboriginal cultures inhabited the region for at least 6000 years.
