Fort Normandeau/Kerry Wood Nature Centre
Explore Red Deer's early history at Fort Normandeau and Central Alberta's natural history at the Kerry Wood Nature Centre.
At Fort Normandeau we celebrate the peaceful coming together of the three founding cultures of the Red Deer area; Metis, First Nations, and European settlers. Take part in interactive programs, explore our new exhibit, or sit by the river and let the feeling of the past wash over you.
The Kerry Wood Nature Centre is Red Deer's home for natural history interpretation and environmental education. Inside, the brand new exhibit and our interpreters will introduce you to the habitats of the Aspen Parkland. Outdoors you can play and learn in the Nova Chemicals Imagination Grove and the Kiwanis Harmony Garden; both innovative projects that connect people to nature through play and music.
Adjacent to the Nature Centre is The Gaetz Lakes Sanctuary, Alberta's first and oldest Federally protected migratory bird sanctuary. Here you can walk the 5km of trails, visit the viewing decks and the bird blind, and get in touch with local nature.
