Baron - #111 in Alberta Discovery Guide and 90.7 km from Red Deer. This natural area is by Buffalo Lake. Heading east on Highway 601 turn North on Range Road 20-0. It is on the east side (right) of the road. No parking lot but there is parking along the ditch look for the green Ducks Unlimited Sign. Do not block any gates.
This area is amazing. Large rolling hills with seemingly endless grasslands with patches of trembling aspen and willow. There are a number of nice wetlands in this area. One is perfect for shorebirds offering up ideal habitat for black-necked stilts and American avocets. Other wildlife in the area include both mule and white-tailed deer, coyotes, richardsons ground squirrels, muskrats, grassland birds, wetland birds, and forest birds. There are a number of wildflowers in bloom the one pictured is a Blanket Flower.
There are not very many paths but there are some game trails. It looks like this area is grazed at some point of the year by cattle as per the old cow patties.
The partner that manages this area is Ducks Unlimited Canada.
Watch for wildlife, cattle, tripping hazards, horseflies, and be cautious around open water.
