What's New at the Forest?

  • Take your class on a field trip back in time to the world of dinosaurs and other prehistoric creatures!

    We are now booking field trips for 2018! Journey down the Discovery Trails and meet massive and majestic herbivores such as Stegosaurus and Triceratops, while sneaking past lethal predators including Tyrannosaurus rex and Spinosaurus. You'll see many familiar dinosaur faces, and maybe meet some creatures you haven't heard of before! Children will enjoy digging for dinosaur bones, playing in the playground, and even taking a ride on a dinosaur.

    The interactive, inquiry-based programs at the Jurassic Forest and Learning Centre will take students and teachers back in time to discover prehistoric flora and fauna, while highlighting the beauty and diversity of the modern forest ecosystem.

    The educational programs at Jurassic Forest were designed to meet Alberta Curriculum targets for Grades 1-7. Students will explore the forest using skills of observation, investigation, and discussion to foster an appreciation for the natural history of the earth and the amazing organisms of the past and present.
