Proposed New Parks Legislation

Parks Legislation Review
17 Jul 2010

As part of Alberta Tourism, Parks and Recreation’s commitment to consult with the public and stakeholders, the Parks Division would like to invite you to comment on proposed new park legislation to align with Alberta’s Plan for Parks.  The objective of the proposed legislation is to streamline existing legislation and ensure that Albertans know what kinds of experiences are available in the parks, so they can better plan their visit.

Climb and Run for Wilderness

Climb and Run for Wilderness is Alberta Wilderness Association's annual Earth Day celebration at the Calgary Tower.  Participants collect sponsorship money to allow them the unique opportunity to climb the 802 stairs inside the Calgary Tower.  You can climb as an individual or in a team of four, as many times as you wish.  It is a great opportunity to get some exercise, learn about wilderness and wildlife conservation work in Alberta, win some outstanding prizes and have lots of fun.  Read more about Climb and Run for Wilderness

Work off those chocolate bunny calories ahead of time, while supporting CPAWS!

CPAWS Northern Alberta is assembling a team of people to participate in the Livia Stoyke Foundation's 24-hour Spin fundraiser. The Foundation provides vital support to a variety of causes (women, children, poverty relief, the arts and the environment) and to organizations like CPAWS.

What 's involved?

Sign up to a cycling shift on the CPAWS bike (for any number of hours), and commit to obtaining at least $20 in pledges (CPAWS will subsidize $30 of the $50 registration fee).  During the event at West Edmonton Mall, you can check out an array of bands and performers, cycle your shift, enjoy tasty food, and enter into a draw for cool prizes - like a 1 week rental of a deluxe houseboat.

Director Leanne Allison in attendance

When Karsten Heuer and Leanne Allison (Being Caribou), along with their 2-year old son, Zev, and indomitable dog Willow set out to trace the footsteps of one of Canada's most famous writers, Farley Mowat, they mean it literally.

Their 5000-kilometre trip – trekking, sailing, portaging and paddling from the prairies to the Maritimes – to discover to people and places that inspired Farley Mowat's most acclaimed books is captured in the compelling documentary Finding Farley.
