Mountains Located in the Southwestern edge of Alberta, the Rocky Mountains are perhaps the best known and most well visited of Alberta's six natural regions. The Rocky Mountains comprise 8 percent of the province.
In the Rocky Mountains, the Montane sub-region exists only in the low-elevation mountain valleys of the Athabasca, North Saskatchewan, Red Deer and Bow rivers. Another small area of Montane exists in a narrow band of the foothills region in southwestern Alberta.
Where is the Canadian Shield located in Alberta?
It is located in the north corner of Alberta.
landscape is very similar to the better known prairies of the south. In the far north it rains a lot at This the hills . woodland caribou

Today, less than 5 percent of Aspen Parkland remains in its native state.
There are three sub-regions of parkland: central parkland, Peace River.
The Parkland Natural Region is one of Alberta's richest agricultural regions and comprises about 12 percent of Alberta. Most of the original aspen parkland survives only in small fragments because few farmers can afford to leave large tracts of original parkland intact. And, fires, which are integral to parkland ecology, are suppressed, changing the natural vegetation mosaic.
