This summer, travel in comfort with our tour partner, Red Arrow Motorcoach. Bring a friend to learn the history of the area from our expert guides, immerse yourself in local stories and meet fascinating characters.

Join us on a great flower-focused tour at the Waterton Wildflowers Festival led by expert guides. Please note that these tours involve moderately strenuous walking on strong slopes, uneven ground, and loose material.

Morning tour by Brenda Holder: Explore the traditional use of fire to heal the land; learn about the appearance of new plants and flowers that offer foods and medicines; hear the stories of the Fire Carriers.

Afternoon tour by Ron McNeil: The "Waterton Front" refers to the area where the prairie meets the mountains. It is an area of majestic views, of rich diversity of habitat and of geological materials. Join soil scientist Ron McNeil and explore the biological and physical diversity near Bellevue Hill. You will learn about wildlife use; about the resilience to stresses such as fire, by some plants; and about park management and plant community restoration in the zone where the prairie abruptly meets the mountains.
