Our Public Lands series takes viewers on a journey through the diverse public lands of Alberta. With the help of recognized Albertan public lands experts, the series examines the history of public lands, the challenges they face today, and our responsibility to maintain them into the future.

Public lands are often considered one of the best ideas the west ever had: land that you and I can enjoy that is a wild and undeveloped, provides a safe haven for wildlife, ensures secure landscape for headwaters, and much more. Public lands make up the majority of land that is not privately owned – about 60% of Alberta. This includes parks and protected areas, Alberta’s forests and mountains, and a large portion of the grasslands and foothills of southern Alberta. 

Join us on Wednesday October 10 for a film discussion and screening with Nick Pink of the Alberta Wilderness Association. Bring a friend! Please consider making a donation to the Alberta Wilderness Association in order to help them with their mission!
