Jasper Alberta Index
In 1907, it was apparent that two transcontinental railways would pass through today's Jasper Alberta Athabasca Valley. Members of Canada's Parliament legislated the Jasper area into being a forest reserve of 13,000 km2, which encompassed Alberta's north Rocky Mountains. On Sept. 14, 1907, Jasper Forest Reserve, was born.
The Jasper Forest Reserve was set aside for the preservation of forest trees on the crests and slopes of the Canadian Rocky Mountains and for the proper maintenance throughout the year of the volume of water in the rivers and streams that have their source in the mountains and traverse the province of Alberta.
