Reminder: Provincial Park Set For Calgary's Playground

Nation, just a quick reminder that the Alberta Government is accepting public input on the Draft Management Plan for the Kananaskis Country Provincial Recreation Areas until September 30th - only 5 days left to be heard!

Located within that draft plan (located here) is the proposal to establish the Elbow Valley Provincial Park, protecting the Elbow River watershed (from which Calgary gets 50% of its water supply) and freeing up additional provincial funding for enforcement, education, visitor information, interpretive programs, and much-needed, long overdue repairs to roads, buildings, picnic spots and campgrounds in the area.

I'd encourage all of you who use the area (or who drink water from a tap in South Calgary) to give your feedback, by clicking here.
