Say YES! to Bighorn Country

Deadline: 
31 Jan 2019

Nestled between Banff and Jasper National Park, the Bighorn is a spectacular piece of wilderness. It’s where grizzly bears roam and harlequin ducks float down pristine streams that provide 90 percent of the water supply for the North Saskatchewan River.

The efforts of many have kept the Bighorn a treasure; for more than 50 years, AWA has been part of the effort to conserve the Bighorn with everything from garbage cleanup, hiking and equestrian trail maintenance, to monitoring and research. Read more about Say YES! to Bighorn Country

Castle Mountain Resort Developments: Request an Environmental Assessment

Deadline: 
16 Nov 2018

A proposal for an expansion of the Castle Mountain Resort (CMR) and its activities has been announced, on a scale similar to that proposed in the early 1990’s by Vacation Alberta Corporation that led to the 1993 Natural Resources Conservation Board public hearings. As presented, CMR’s Master Development Plan (May 2017) will not require an Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) unless people convince Alberta Environment and Parks that an EIA is essential and necessary.  

Take action. Submit a letter of concern by Friday, November 16 to Alberta Environment and Parks. Read more about Castle Mountain Resort Developments: Request an Environmental Assessment
