About Glory Hills: Glory Hills is located within the Glory Hills Environmentally Significant Area. Wetlands on the property are part of a chain of wetlands that help filter and protect our water supply.

This natural area is located in the transition zone between the Boreal Forest and Aspen Parkland regions, and therefore contains a wide variety of plant and animal life. The site contains dense aspen forest, open grassland, wetlands and a lake. It is home to a range of iconic Canadian wildlife species, including moose, beaver, coyote, deer, fisher, fox, ruffed grouse, a breeding pair of loons, and is adjacent to a great blue heron colony.

Many cultures travelled through and lived within the Parkland County region but the Haudenosaunee (Iroquois) and the Nehiyawak (Cree) were the ones who ended up making permanent land bases with in these lands. The Michel First Nations of both cultures and the Nhiyaw Alexander First Nations both have treaty rights to lands within the region. Fishing was and still is important within this region due to its abundance of lakes. The plains within the regions provided fertile soils for homesteads that sustained many communities after the fall of the bison and the fur trade.
