Wabamun North Shoreline (D3-170)

Site Details

TransAlta has been a significant part of the Wabamun landscape since 1956 and has provided employment opportunities and electricity for a growing Alberta. With the decommissioning of the power plant, TransAlta is donating several parcels of land to be maintained as habitat through the Wildlife Trust Fund. The 54.5-acre Wabamun North Shoreline Conservation Site ensures that environmental and habitat values along Wabamun Lake are maintained into the future. Prime fish spawning habitat, shorebirds and a variety of waterfowl are associated with the riparian habitats. The uplands are diverse and provide year-round cover for deer and moose. Songbirds, woodpeckers and a host of other wildlife also use the diverse uplands and tree cover.


Day use only. No open fires. Foot access only.
