Clifford E. Lee Nature Sanctuary

Located 33 km southwest of Edmonton’s city centre, the Clifford E. Lee Nature Sanctuary protects 348 acres of marshland, open meadow, aspen parkland and pine forest. The varied habitats of the Sanctuary attract a diversity of animals, including more than one hundred bird species, and provide excellent opportunities for wildlife viewing.
The boardwalk and connected upland trails are easily navigated in summer by all skill levels, but they are not considered wheelchair accessible.  In winter, please feel free to help us clear snow off the boardwalk using the shovels provided – every little bit helps!
Check the Visiting Guidelines page for information about responsible site use.  Note that visiting hours are one hour before sunrise to sunset.
