Where are we going today?

he landscape is generally rolling parkland, containing numerous depressions and brush-filled areas. Trembling aspen is the dominant tree species with some balsam, poplar, birch, and dogwood (red willow) growing near the river. Vegetation used for healing and ceremonial purposes of long ago can still be found along the system of hiking trails. Dandelion, juniper, prairie sage, and a profusion of wildflowers abound. Numerous birds and animals inhabit Batoche. Coyotes are occasionally seen along the river bank as are white-tailed deer. The distinctive calls of soaring red-tailed hawks often compete with the squawks of the feeding pelicans and gulls along the river's edge. As you walk, the bushes will periodically rustle with the sound of ground squirrels, songbirds and rabbits searching for that elusive meal. Enjoy the natural beauty of Batoche along our system of walking trails. Available in the visitor centre, the South Saskatchewan Meander guiding pamphlet provides background information about the natural history of the area.

    Pretty interesting, but viewed it without a tour. Probably get more out of it with a guide.
