Did you know that Jasper National Park is part of the Canadian Rocky Mountains Parks World Heritage Site? Four Canadian National parks and three British Columbia Provincial Parks reside within the UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) site. The parks include mountains, glaciers and hot springs, as well as the headwaters of several major North American river systems including the North Saskatchewan, Athabasca, Columbia and Fraser rivers.The region is

recognized for its natural beauty and wide array of flora and fauna.

Jasper National Park

This park was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1984 because of the breathtaking mountain landscapes – mountain peaks, glaciers, lakes, waterfalls, canyons, and limestone caves as well as fossils found here make it one of the world’s natural treasures. Jasper National Park is a scenic 45 minute drive away from Mountain River Lodge, a Mt. Robson Inn. Along the way, watch for wildlife such as moose, bears and a large herd of wapiti (elk) that have inhabited the valley floor of Jasper National park for over 10,000 years.

Mt. Robson Provincial Park

Mt. Robson Park was inducted into the Canadian Rocky Mountain Parks UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1990. Mt. Robson Provincial Park was recognized for its unspoiled natural landscapes and scenery. Mt. Robson itself holds geological and ecological significance; Mount Robson is the highest mountain in the Canadian Rockies. It rises 3000 meters from the valley floor to the summit. The surrounding mountain landscapes contain the habitats for rare and endangered species.
