Athabasca Dunes Ecological Reserve - image courtesy of & copyrighted by Chris Salvo

Here, wind and sand combine to create Alberta’s moving desert and your destination for nature based outdoor recreation and adventure. Shifting up to 1.5 metres a year, these powerful dunes bury forests and fill in lakes, leaving behind a flat, barren plain.

Oil Sands Discovery Centre

The Centre is an educational facility committed to increasing public awareness and knowledge about the oil sands.
