From exploring the hidden treasures of the opimihāw Valley to handling artifacts and learning new skills, our programs are an interactive, educational way to experience Wanuskewin and engage with Indigenous ways of knowing. With five core programs available year round, we rotate through seasonal program offerings in the fall and winter (September to March) and the spring and summer (April to August) for a variety of tours throughout the year.

Curriculum Connections

All of our guided programs supplement the Saskatchewan curriculum, joining classroom-based learning with Indigenous ways of knowing. Select a program for detailed curriculum connections and indicators.

Yes, our bison were reintroduced to the land in 2019. We now have a quickly growing conservation herd that can be seen grazing and wallowing from the road or Bison Viewing Platform most days.

Wanuskewin works to preserve and conserve the ecological health of the opimihāw Valley through resource management and educational programming that emphasizes the importance of humans as stewards of the land we live on.

While there are many reasons we are applying for UNESCO World Heritage status, the simplest reason is that UNESCO designation will give Wanuskewin the ability to better preserve, conserve, and protect this land for generations to come.
