Attend a Southern Foothills Community Stewardship Initiative Public Forum

This month signals the kick-off of the public forums for the Southern Foothills Community Stewardship Initiative, a regional citizen’s initiative to give voice to local priorities and recommendations for the Southern Foothills landscape and watersheds. The intent of the initiative is to inform land use planning and stewardship processes at the municipal and provincial level, and to contribute to building the long term, regenerative capacity of the region’s landscape. The Southern Foothills Initiative focuses on the Alberta landscape from Highway 22X south to Highway 3, and west of Highway 2.
