Don’t drive here 6 pm – 9 am
Again this spring, Parks Canada is asking for your help. To ensure the area remains a high quality home for wildlife, visitors should avoid travelling the 17-kilometre eastern section of the Bow Valley Parkway, between the Trans-Canada Highway/Bow Valley Parkway interchange and Johnston Canyon Campground, from March 1 to June 25, during the dusk to dawn hours of 6 p.m. to 9 a.m.
All businesses and commercial accommodations remain open during this voluntary travel restriction and are easily accessible by driving the Trans-Canada Highway and exiting at Castle Junction.
To give the animals the space they need to thrive, Parks Canada has, for the past 15 years, asked visitors to voluntarily refrain from using the eastern section of the parkway from dusk to dawn during the spring, crucial times of day and year for the valley’s species.
