It was established in 1922 to protect the last remaining herds of bison in northern Canada.

In 2013, ‘Wood Buff’ became the world’s largest dark sky preserve. Dark sky preserves are ‘astronomy parks’ where local ordinances defend the night against urban light pollution.

It’s also the only place you can fly or drive to and stay at with modern amenities at which you can see both the wonders of the aurora and the full glory of the Milky Way.
