Tear it down, Charlie Brown!
Location: Tofield, Alberta
How can you help local animals? Here's your chance! Spend the day among beautiful wetlands and meadows removing cross-fencing to reduce barriers to wildlife movement.
Located 40 minutes east of Edmonton, NCC’s Brown property is made up of wetland and aspen parkland habitat and is home to a wide diversity and abundance of wildlife.
In addition to ungulates like moose and deer, the property is recognized under the North American Waterfowl Management Plan (NAWMP) as an important staging and breeding habitat for migratory waterfowl and shorebirds. Since wetland habitats play such a large role in this precious ecosystem, NCC, together with Ducks Unlimited Canada, have completed wetland restoration projects on the property.
As a special bonus of the day, Jaimee Dupont, Natural Area Manager for NE Alberta will delve into the history of the property and highlight some of the exciting conservation initiatives taking place on the land, including our wetland restoration project, the installation of range enclosures, and the release of weevils for biological control of thistle. The leaseholder on the property will also join our group for the day and share his perspectives and experiences working and living on the land.
Join us for a day of hands on conservation work, protecting the wildlife of Cooking Lake Moraine, one wire at a time!
