Nocturnal Animal Adaptations

While the stars may show themselves off during dark nights in Jasper, the animals are doing quite the opposite. Join a Parks Canada Interpreter to learn firsthand how Jasper’s nocturnal animals thrive in the darkness with our display surrounding nocturnal animal adaptations.

Green Screen Photography Opportunity

Not everyone wants to wait up until 3:00 a.m. to get the perfect picture of the dark sky - although we applaud those who do! 

If you want to be in that dramatic dark sky photo but also want to keep your regular sleep pattern, drop by our green screen and we’ll be your photographer. You can choose from three different dark sky backdrops.
