Dinosaur bones. Beavers. Lonely homesteads.

Prairie Paddling has many interpretive stories that help paddlers understand the environment they’re paddling through.

Learn about the geology of the badlands, which host world-famous dinosaur fossils. Find out about grasslands ecology, coal mining history, the behaviour of beavers, glaciation, homesteading history, and the morphology of meandering and braided rivers.

And read about Happy Jack, the gruff, lonesome cowboy who lived in his cabins by the Red Deer River, raising cattle and “raising hell”.
