Dinosaur Provinical Park is located on the shores of Red Deer River in Alberta, Canada and is south of Wardlow. In 1910, a farmer discovered dinosaur bones on his farmland. As a result, paleontologists began to investigate the farmland in search of more dinosaur bones. So, in 1955, Dinosaur Provinical Park was founded and was named a World Heritage Site in 1979. Approximately 40 species of dinosaurs have been recovered there. 

Some of the dinosaurs who have been recovered there are:

  • Albertosaurus, who had powerful long hind legs and ate Centrosaurus.
  • Centrosaurus, who was a large dinosaur. A bed of bones containing 50 of them was discovered at Dinosaur Provincial Park and it was predicted that these bones might have been the remains of a storm. 
  • Corythosaurus, a swamp-inhabiting hadrosaur who lived in herds and may have used the numerous nasal passages in it's crest to create sound waves.
