Flowers and Birds

Waterton Lakes National Park, Alberta, Canada

Waterton Lakes National Park boasts over 1400 varieties of flowers! Waterton Park's wide variety of habitats is a haven for an astonishing number of plants and wildflowers. Due to the "Prairies to Peaks" environment in the park, plants that live in prairies all the way to the peaks of the mountain live in the park, about 1400 varieties. "Beargrass" is unique to this area, and the Pygmy Poppy has been found in Canada in Waterton Park only. Amongst these plants are over 250 species of birds. Positioned on the axis of two major migratory corridors, Waterton Lakes is a bird watchers paradise!
