The foothills are similar to the mountain region, but are lower in elevation and generally drier. Forests of spruce, pine and poplar are often broken by tracts of grassland. This mosaic of vegetation provides good habitat for a variety of wildlife.

Travel

You can reach the major centres in the foothills region on all-season highways from Edmonton and Calgary. The region is connected by paved highways and gravel roads.
