Dino Might in Alberta

By Linda Tancs

Dinosaur Provincial Park in Alberta, Canada, is aptly named. After all, over 150 complete dinosaur skeletons have been discovered there as well as over 50 species. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the park reportedly yields the world’s most complete record of the late Cretaceous Period. In addition to its ancient remains, the site features a badlands landscape similar to that of the Badlands in South Dakota. It’s located in the Dry Mixedgrass Subregion of Alberta’s Grassland Natural Region, the warmest and driest subregion in Alberta.
