Waterton Wildflower Festival - 2019
Waterton, AB Canada
Come discover why Waterton is the Wildflower Capital of Canada!
About this Festival:
We invite you to step into a wildflower wonderland, a veritable bouquet of wildflowers in the wildflower capital of Canada. The spectacular setting of Waterton Lakes National Park is home to more than 1,000 vascular plant species including half of all wildflower species found in Alberta. Of those, 175 species are listed as rare in Alberta and 20 are only found in Waterton.
From beargrass to orchids, pink meadowsweet, and glacier lilies, learn to identify the different species, see wildflowers from horseback, indulge in an afternoon tea with local experts, and learn about wildflower photography and painting. The possibilities and mediums are endless when learning about Waterton wildflowers during the 13th annual Waterton Wildflower Festival.
I was in town for this last year, quite by accident. Waterton is always amazing but the festival was a nice bonus. All sort of flowers and wildlife about, and not terribly crowded. Will always come back.
