“astonishing diversity of plants”
Just half an hour south of the Trans Canada Highway, this high plateau stands above the prairie as an island of cool and moist forest. With its mix of forests, wetlands and grasslands, it is home to an astonishing diversity of plants and animals: over 220 bird species, 47 mammal species, as well as several species each of reptiles and amphibians.
hi - just spent 2 great days camping at Deer Hollow. I really enjoyed the mix of peace and quiet with more civilized options. The Visitor Center was beautiful with great displays and the young woman on the desk was very personable. I was disappointed, however, not to see more recycling containers throughout the park and especially in the camp area. When I tried to find them as I was leaving, I couldn't and as a result, I have a bag full of recyclables in my car in Regina. Given the park's dedication to preserving the wilderness and designation as a Dark Sky preserve (awesome!) I would have expected to see more recycling - differentiated bins for plastics, cardboard, and organics - not just refundable bottles and cans. Just a suggestion for improving a fantastic and beautiful outdoor experience! Thanks- Sharon Malone, Maple Ridge, BC.
