City of Edmonton Master Naturalist Program Application Deadline

Join the City’s Master Naturalist Program and become a steward of Edmonton’s natural areas

Edmonton's natural areas have tremendous ecological, social, educational and economic value. To preserve this value, it is up to us as a community to be good stewards of these ecologically-rich areas!

But keeping these natural areas clean, safe and sustainable is a big job, which is one of the reasons the City of Edmonton’s Office of Biodiversity created the Master Naturalist Program. The program teaches interested Edmontonians more about the ecology of our city and how they can help preserve and steward natural areas.

Oil Spills 101: Crude Truths, Corporate Spin& Community Organizing for Environmental Justice

Oct 29 2013 - 12:00am to 3:00am

From pipeline blow outs and tanker spills to train derailments, when it comes to oil spills, how can we protect our communities, and the lands and waters that we love? How can we push through the corporate spin and public relations campaigns to advocate effectively for our communities and the planet in the aftermath of these environmental disasters?

This workshop will cover the basics of oil spill impacts and demystify industry and government cleanup. It will explore some of the ways that we, the grassroots, can skill up and step up when it comes to community oil spill response and ecological detox and recovery.

As part of Sustainability Awareness Week at the University of Alberta, APIRG, in collaboration with Public Interest Alberta are excited to bring you this free workshop:

Are you passionate about growing and gathering your own food and medicine, but are concerned that the soils in your community are contaminated by heavy metals or chemicals?

Do you live in a place where industrial activity formerly occurred or is currently taking place and are concerned about the toxic legacies left behind?

From transforming vacant lots and wastelands into urban farms, community gardens, and wild spaces, to growing and gathering safe and healthy food and medicine in our backyards and wildlands, how can we work with the power of living systems to heal contaminated and damaged land? When it comes to environmental disasters, like oil spills, how can we skill up and help with the recovery of the communities, lands and waters that we love?
