From the Plaque

Canadian Rockey Mountain Parks
World Heritage Site

The Canadian Rockey Mountain Parks were designated a site of outstanding universal value and placed on the World Heritage List on October 30, 1984.

Among the attributes that warranted this designation were features such as Lake Louise, Malign Lake, The Columbia Icefields, and the Burgess Shale, which was assigned World Heritage Status in its own right in 1980.

Beginning in 1885, when a part of which is now Banff National Park was reserved for public use, the Canadian Rockies have formed the backbone of Canada's protected natural areas system.

This extensive area with its large tracts of wilderness is dedicated as a World Heritage Site for the benefit and enjoyment of all nations.

This plaque was unveiled August 21, 1985 by His Royal Highness the Duke of Edinburgh.
