Field Trip - Sunday, May 1, 2016

Join us for a field trip to the Rachel Agnes Hayes 2 Property. It is a 169 ha (418 acres) property owned by the Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC) and is located on Boss Hill, north of Stettler. Prior to NCC’s purchase of the property in 2014, the property was a ranch used for cattle grazing. The property is a nice example of native Aspen Parkland with freshwater and saline wetlands, aspen forests, shrublands, and native grasslands. There are also beautiful views of Buffalo Lake from the west side of the property. We will meet at 10:00am and the walk will last about 2 hours. This trip will be led by Alan Dodd.

Government Sacrifices Protected Grasslands to Coalbed Methane Without Public Consultation

Alberta Wilderness AssociationAlberta Native Plant Council

News Release: March 8, 2007

The Energy and Utilities Board (EUB) has given Pioneer Natural Resources approval to drill a coalbed methane well in one of Alberta's last remaining rough fescue grasslands and aspen parkland, the Rumsey Natural Area. Even though both are well-established stakeholders in Rumsey, neither Alberta Wilderness Association (AWA) nor the Alberta Native Plant Council (ANPC) were contacted by government or the company. The groups are weighing what legal options they have to prevent the well from being drilled, including appealing the issuance of the well licence in the courts.
