Saskatoon Island Provincial Park is one of Alberta’s first provincial parks, dating back to 1932. While the park was originally established at the request of local residents who wanted to protect the saskatoon berry bushes, by 1933 it was also recognized as a wildlife refuge for its most famous residents, the trumpeter swans. It has been a federal migratory bird sanctuary since 1948, protecting critical nesting habitat for the swans. The provincial park actually was once an island, but decreasing water levels in Saskatoon Lake resulted in the island joining the mainland in the 1960s. The cut-off section of Saskatoon Lake is now known as Little Lake. Sandwiched between the two lakes, the park is home to large numbers of grassland, forest, and lakeside birds in addition to the swans. It is a popular place for bird watching.
