Opportunity Description:


The highest feature on the landscape approximately 30 km west of Grande Prairie, Saskatoon Mountain is an island of foothills forest surrounded by agricultural land. Saskatoon Mountain itself rises over 150 metres above the surrounding landscape with a steep drop to the south and west with a more gradual slope on the north side. Special features include the site of the oldest known human occupation in northern Alberta, an island of northern foothills forest and the remains of a major radar base that was part of the early warning Pinetree Line. 

The Saskatoon Mountain Provincial Recreation Area (PRA) encompasses approximately 900 hectares and protects a fascinating diversity of plants and animals many of which are not common in the Grande Prairie area. The PRA also includes a network of trails and is very popular with local residents for walking, biking, cross-country skiing and motorized off highway vehicle use. 

In March 2018, the Saskatoon Mountain Natural Area was reclassified as the Saskatoon Mountain Provincial Recreation Area by Order in Council. In collaboration with Parks Division staff, the Province requires the services of a Contractor to conduct the necessary stakeholder engagement and develop a draft management plan as described in Appendix B.
