Jasper National Park is now into full summer mode.  That means family friendly interpretative shows at both Whistlers Campground and the Old Fire Hall behind the Info Centre in Downtown Jasper.

Whistler’s Campground

All shows at the campground get underway at 9:00 p.m.


Bats, birds and fish are important for Jasper National Park’s ecosystems but they are facing new threats. Find out why and get the latest news on research in Jasper. Together we can protect Jasper’s lakes, rivers, wetlands and species at risk.

BATS IN THE DARK:  Thursday and Saturday

Meet Batley, a little brown bat that makes his home here in Jasper National Park, and learn about the things he interacts with every day – humans, White-nose syndrome, and of course… bugs!

CLAW AND ORDER:  Friday and Sunday

Follow Jane Doe, a mule deer on a mission to help humans and wildlife to better understand each other. Journey with Jane as she encounters some of Jasper’s most famous and funniest wildlife characters.
