Alberta’s Provinical Parks Framework Needs Your Input

Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society — Northern Alberta Chapter
Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society — Calgary/Banff Chapter

October 10 Deadline

Currently, the Government of Alberta is rewriting the rules that will guide the creation and management of Provincial Parks and Protected Areas into the future.

CPAWS has been consulted on the draft Parks Planning Framework and is alarmed to find that:

  • The primary purpose of parks in environmental protection and conservation has been almost completely ignored in the draft framework and
  • There is no goal to either expand or complete Alberta’s Protected Areas system.

Please help us get it back on track— the deadline for comments on the draft Parks Planning Framework is October 10th. Read more »
