Watt Mountain Natural Area

The Watt Mountain Natural Area  is a 953 hectare natural area located approximately 30 kilometers northwest of the community of High Level.  The area was identified as a potential natural area in 1983.  In 1989, the Province of Alberta designated the site as a "Natural Area" and placed a Protective Notation (PNT) on the area to ensure no industrial development in the future.

In addition to having high recreational value, the Watt Mountain Natural Area also has high ecological value.  Within it's distinctive ecosystem are rare species assemblages for the region.  Mountain Ash is one species rare in the area, but found here.
