Lesser Slave Lake Provincial Park, home of the Lesser Slave Lake Bird Observatory, is a 2 1/2-hour drive northwest of Edmonton and on the east shoreline of Lesser Slave Lake. The second largest in Alberta, it stretches for 107 km.

Researchers have established that Lesser Slave Lake and nearby Marten Mountain act as a natural barrier to migratory birds. Many migrant birds avoid crossing the lake and veer to the east. Marten Mountain, elevation 1,020 metres above sea level, funnels the migrants along the shoreline.
