STRONG SCIENCE TO SUPPORT ALBERTA'S PARKS PLANNING AND LEGISLATION
It is an exciting time for conservation in Alberta -- the government has repeatedly and publicly committed to achieving 17% protection of our landscapes by 2020, and to creating better parks legislation for the province. CPAWS is uniquely positioned to inform these initiatives. Working together, CPAWS Northern and Southern Alberta chapters will jointly drive a project which not only utilizes scientifically-sound and collaboratively-created conservation planning tools to inform the government's park creation and management goals, but also use communications and education to bring awareness to the public, creating a generation of Albertans who are vocal about their support for parks.
