11 kilometres East of Hafford, in the Redberry Lake regional park, is a research and education centre for the Redberry Biosphere Reserve.  This biosphere is Saskatchewan’s only, and 1 of only 16 in Canada.

A Biosphere Reserve is an area of ecological significance that has been set aside to help understand and maintain nature’s systems alongside community development and farming.

The Redberry Lake Biosphere Reserve features a saline lake, a bird sanctuary home to 9 endangered and threatened species, and 112,000 hectares of prairie with marshes and even patches of natural mixed prairie.

There are hiking trails and as of last year, even canoe rentals available for your enjoyment. To learn more, please visit the Redberry Lake website.

There is a geocache on the reserve too:
