I though I would show you a few photos of a Beaver pond from Elk Island National Park, This park was created around the turn of the Century (1900), it was created to conserve the last Plains Bison of North America. The Bison were purchased from the state of Montana, USA. At the time they were not wanted in the States. Now the Park sells them to Nature areas all over the USA and Canada. The Park is cut in half by Highway 16 (goes east west). In the South end of the Park there are Wood Bison, that were kept apart so not to interbreed. The park is covered with many lakes and ponds so is a great habitat for these creatures. These are also great places for water fowl and many other birds of all kinds. This very big park is only 45 kilometers east of Edmonton. Here are some photos for you to see.
