​Creating a balance between urban life and nature


We’re working for a future where nature and urban life find a balance.

We are helping to build a Calgary with:

  • stable wildlife food sources,
  • strong habitat availability and,
  • sustainable wildlife transportation corridors.

These are some of the projects making life better every day for Calgarians—and our valuable urban wildlife.

  • Targeted grazing

    ​Using goats to control weeds in our parks.

  • Habitat restoration

    ​Improving the health and resilience of our parks and green spaces​.

  • Pest management pilot projects

    Piloting different approaches to pest management to remove and reduce plants and insects that harm our environment, damage wildlife habitat and reduce the quality of our parks. ​
