Rural Municipality of Birch Hills No. 460
Birch Hills No. 460 is a rural municipality in north-central Saskatchewan, Canada within census division 15. It is located southeast of Prince Albert on Highway 3, and north of Saskatoon. The R.M. is within the Saskatchewan Rivers School Division No. 119.
It is mainly a farming community, but due to all the trees, pursuing such industry is difficult.
The name comes from all of the hills to the south and east and the abundance of birch trees which once covered the area, the hamlet was named Birch Hills. While native birch trees are not as prevalent in the area today as they once were, residents have caught the spirit of the name by planting birch trees on boulevards and private property.
The area is part of the aspen parkland biome.
