An outdoor learning wonderland right in the heart of one of Western Canada’s largest cities

Bow Habitat Station, located in Calgary’s Pearce Estate Park on the Bow River, offers people of all ages a first-hand opportunity to see, learn and experience Alberta’s wetlands and aquatic habitats in a natural environment. Hiking paths, viewing areas and interpretive signs enhance the experience where visitors can scout for waterfowl and wildlife, listen for song birds, and do some critter dipping.

Bow Habitat Station is also home to the Sam Livingston Fish Hatchery where trout are raised from fry to juvenile. Want to give trout fishing a try? You can do that too. Several programs and activities are offered at the Discovery Centre and it’s all there waiting for you.

Ducks Unlimited Canada is pleased to be a partner of Bow Habitat Station along with Alberta Environment and Parks and City of Calgary. Support from several corporations and individuals is also greatly appreciated.


We want to thank the many corporations, individuals and foundations that supported the development of our marsh at Bow Habitat Station.
