The Hungry Bend Sandhills

"A Special Place"

The Hungry Bend Sandhills include unique dune complexes of national significance, sections of the Peace and Boyer River valleys, and outstanding wetland staging areas. This area was nominated in 1996 for protection under the Alberta Special Places 2000 program.  The Peace River Valley which forms its southern boundary is part of the transcontinental Sir Alexander Mackenzie Voyageur Route. The Peace is considered to be a Canadian Heritage River.
