Nevis Parkland Area - May 26 2021
Nevis - #121 in Alberta Discovery Guide and 50.4 km from Red Deer. This area is past Alix heading east on Highway 12 on the south side I park to the south of Highway 21.
This natural area is fascinating, offering grassland areas, poplar forests, wetlands in depressions and small dry patches that allow for the growth of brittle prickle-pear cactus. Prairie smoke a gorgeous wildflower is interspersed throughout the grassland areas.
There are a few game trails that wander through the property as well as some vehicle tracks that lead into oil leases. Very neat property worth a stroll through offering a spectacular assortment of plants, birds and mammals.
Keep your eyes open for wildlife, watch for tripping hazards, and be cautious around the rail road track that runs through the property.
Partners that manage this area include Alberta Conservation Association, Alberta Fish & Game Association and Chevron Canada.
Be safe and enjoy the outdoors!
