Our environment is full of treasures. Each one is important, because they help sustain the Biosphere, a “neighbourhood” of different ‘ecosystems’, and home to all life on earth. From the fastest fliers to the slowest crawlers, the tallest trees to the smallest flowers, they are our wild neighbours, who give us air to breathe, food to eat and water to drink.
New Natural Treasure Sites are in development. Check back soon for updates!

Scientists have found over 1.5 million species of plants and animals alive today, and there could be as many as 30 million species that we haven't even found yet!

"It is an amazing program for our Fairmont families! The children have lots of fun exploring the beautiful Canadian Rockies and learning more about Jasper's natural environment. The element of learning how to use a GPS while finding all the clues left on the trail map definitely triggers lots of interests in finding more information about the local flora and fauna! Kids of all ages absolutely love it!!!"
