North Saskatchewan Region – Time to speak up for Headwaters, Bighorn, Foothills and Parkland

From: Joanna Skrajny, AWA Conservation Specialist

This is an important opportunity to speak up and contact your elected representatives. It is up to each and every one of us to ensure that the North Saskatchewan Regional Plan protects our headwaters, foothills, parkland, rivers and the wildlife that depend on these areas. As Earth Day approaches, I hope you will take a few moments to send in your comments, or even better call or write your MLA – they are waiting to hear from you! Read more »
