Porter Natural Area - June 7 2021
Porter Natural Area - #170 in Alberta Discovery Guide and 53 km from Red Deer. This area is East on Highway 54 past Spruce View and Raven and is locates on the Southside of the Highway. I personally park on Range Road 54 where there is a pullout on the east side. However, There are a few parking areas along this natural area that can fit around 10 vehicles one is directly on Highway 54.
This natural area is stunning. It has the Raven River that runs through the property as well as a mixed-wood forest with interspersed grasslands. Wildlife in the area include moose, deer, coyotes, weasels, and forest birds. If you're looking for a peaceful area to enjoy the sounds of nature with a meandering river this is the perfect area for you.
There are trails that wander through this property through the grasslands and into the forest.
Partners that manage this property are Alberta Conservation Association and Alberta Fish & Game Association.
Be aware of wildlife in the area, travel in pairs or groups and watch for changing weather conditions.
Happy exploring and be safe.
