About Us

The AMLRS is the University of Alberta, Augustana Faculty's field research station. It was built in the spring of 2015 and offers laboratory space, classroom, and astronomical observatory for research and education purposes, as a residence.

Our station is nestled in the quiet beauty of Miquelon Lake Provincial Park in Alberta's east-central region. The area around Miquelon Lake contains a high level of biodiversity and geologically unique features, offering many opportunities for station users. 

We strive to become a leader in sustainability, and promote research and learning in natural history and resource management. Read our Mission & Goals and Sustainability pages to learn more!
