Golden Fences

Event Details

May 23rd, 2019, 10:00 AM - 3:00 PM

Golden Ranches Conservation Area (Lindbrook), Alberta
Infrastructure / Site Cleanup

Get ready for a golden day at Golden Ranches! This conservation area has a number of old barbed wire fences that are no longer needed. We need your help to remove those fences and make it easier for wildlife to pass through the area. After all the wire rolling is complete volunteers will help to conduct a health survey of trees planted on the property in 2012.

If you’d like to carpool, please click here to join a ride or offer your spare seats to others. Every little part helps!

About Golden Ranches Conservation Area (Lindbrook)

This 355 hectare (875 ac.) property, located in the Cooking Lake Moraine just 30 km southeast of Edmonton, is jointly owned and operated by the Nature Conservancy of Canada and its partners. Made up of mature aspen, open grasslands and internationally recognized wetlands, the area attracts a wide range of wildlife, such as Canada warbler, moose, and red fox.

NCC acquired the Golden Ranches with the assistance of the Government of Canada’s Natural Areas Conservation Program (NACP), a unique public-private partnership to accelerate the pace of land conservation across southern Canada.

What you will be doing

Get ready to roll! Volunteers will be removing a barbed wire fence that is in disrepair and creating a hazard for wildlife. This will be a strenuous task but many hands make light work!

Why you will love it

We will finish up the day by surveying the health of trees that were planted by volunteers on the property in 2011. No experience necessary, NCC staff will guide you through the survey process!
