10 Things you Only do on the Prairies

1.  Fill a bucket with saskatoon berries and make a Saskatoon Berry Pie

2.  Visit the RCMP Heritage Museum located in Regina on the RCMP Depot Division, the only RCMP cadet training facility in Canada. 

3.  Wave at everyone along a grid (gravel) road and they will wave back! Prairie people are a friendly bunch who also would be more than happy to give directions if you get lost while exploring along the many grid roads – Saskatchewan has the largest grid road network in Canada! 

4.  See a free roaming Plains Bison herd in Grasslands National Park, the only national prairie park. The park is also the only place where you can spot the Black-tailed Prairie Dog and the Black-footed Ferret in their native habitat. Saskatchewan’s other national park, Prince Albert National Park, houses the only free roaming Plains Bison in its historic range in Canada. Head into the west end of the park on horseback to catch a glimpse of this majestic herd.

5. Visit the Batoche National Historic Site and the rifle pits of the last military battle in Canada that was part of the Metis Resistance/North West Resistance of 1885.
