Writing-on-Stone Provincial Park

The petroglyphs and pictographs of Writing-on-Stone / Áísínai´pi are remarkably well-preserved, considering the ravages of time and the elements. Erosion is slowly and relentlessly taking a toll, however. Water and wind, to a lesser extent, slowly erode some panels. Others disappear with the sudden collapse of a cliff or hoodoo. New laser scanners make high-resolution records of rock art images and measure their erosion rate.

Please show respect as you visit this sacred place, and do not deface rock art or landforms. Writing, carving or otherwise leaving marks on the rocks at Writing-on-Stone Provincial Park is considered vandalism and is illegal. Please help us protect this vital resource for future generations by educating members of your visiting group and reporting acts of vandalism to staff.
