The Provincial government announced today, 13 Dec '18.:


"Following months of collaborative discussions with Indigenous groups, industry and other stakeholders, the Government of Alberta is proposing to establish the Biodiversity Stewardship Area to be designated as a wildland provincial park (protected area). The proposed protected area is about 166,110 hectares located directly south of Wood Buffalo National Park. The designation would shift the current multiple-use area with existing forest and energy tenure into an area focused on the conservation of biodiversity."



This may be of particular interest to those who fish the Peace/Athabasca watershed.  More information and opportunity to provide feedback is available at:
