City of Edmonton Master Naturalist Program Application Deadline

Apr 22 2014 - 6:00am

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.

With the comment period soon ending on January 15, 2014, Alberta Wilderness Association (AWA) has sent official recommendations to the Alberta government in response to the Draft South Saskatchewan Regional Plan (SSRP). After extensively reviewing the draft, AWA has serious concerns with the draft and wants significant changes in the final SSRP. Although there are positive strategic directions in the draft indicating a need for a cumulative effects management approach, land use tradeoffs and sufficient headwater and biodiversity protection are largely absent.
