Support Grassland Protection in Alberta

Deadline: 
14 Aug 2018 to 31 Aug 2018

Heritage Rangelands are a protected area designation specific for Alberta’s grasslands.  Heritage Rangelands protect grassland ecosystems from further industrial disturbance and cultivation while using sustainable grazing practices to maintain healthy grasslands and provide economic benefits to Albertans.

The provincial government is seeking public input on the proposed expansion and reclassification of southeastern Alberta’s Twin River Heritage Rangeland Natural Area (HRNA). This is an important chance to support protection for this critical grassland habitat and to raise concerns over ongoing threats encroaching on this landscape from oil and gas exploration.

Alberta Environment and Parks is seeking input from the public and stakeholders on the proposed reclassification and expansion of the Twin River Heritage Rangeland Natural Area (Twin River HRNA).

Yesterday, the Alberta government released a proposal to expand the Twin River Heritage Rangeland Natural Area in order to protect a significant piece of Alberta’s endangered grasslands. Alberta Wilderness Association (AWA) is relieved to finally see concrete steps towards protection of a critical piece of Alberta’s native grasslands, which has been on government books awaiting protection for years. AWA remains concerned about ongoing potential threats to this landscape from oil and gas exploration.

Public Lands: The Next Target for Alberta’s Renewable Energy Land Rush?

Will the Government of Alberta allow industrial scale wind and solar farms on public lands? Since early June Alberta Wilderness Association (AWA) has posed this question several times to the provincial government. AWA is still waiting for an answer.

The dramatic expansion of big wind and big solar projects now underway must not take place at the expense of our threatened native grasslands, parklands, and foothills. AWA believes Alberta needs a public lands policy that explicitly addresses the renewable energy sector.
