Edmonton to Central Alberta Sightseeing

Head for Red Deer and explore the Kerry Wood Nature Centre, a year-round destination for hands-on natural history interpretation.  Their Interpretive Centre acts as a hub for the walking trails that will allow you to explore nature in the Red Deer River valley in Waskasoo Park.

Nearby in the river valley is Heritage Ranch, a favourite location for wedding photos, family gatherings, and horse trail rides.  Enjoy an included lunch at the Ranch’s Westlake Grill, overlooking the river.

Then head northeast.  Near Prentiss you will make a very interesting visit to the Ellis Bird Farm.  Your visit to this working farm, also a non-profit organization, will reveal their important work conserving native species of cavity nesting birds such as mountain bluebirds and tree swallows.

Your last stop will be for a quick look at the World’s Largest Fishing Lure in Lacombe, right along Highway 2A in Len Thompson Park.  Lacombe is home to Thompson-Palliser Bait Company, manufacturing Len Thompson Lures since 1929.

Make your way back home, your mind filled with wonder at nature’s variety in our own province.

THERE IS PLENTY OF STORAGE SPACE UNDER YOUR MOTORCOACH FOR THOSE EXTRA PURCHASES!  YOU ARE WELCOME TO BRING A SMALL COOLER BAG.
