Infrastructure / Site Cleanup
Join the Nature Conservancy of Canada and Edmonton and Area Land Trust to keep the trails clean here at the beautiful Bunchberry Meadows! Along the way, we’ll be tackling pesky overgrown vegetation, debris and litter. Feel free to practice your citizen science and photography skills by uploading any wildlife photos to Nature Lynx. Is there any better way to appreciate the natural world and help our communities? We can’t wait to see you out there!

Having been virtually untouched for 40 years, Bunchberry Meadows yields some of the last old-growth forests remaining in Central Alberta. Jack pines with a girth of over two meters have been discovered on the property, attracting porcupines, long-tailed weasels and wood frog.
This 259 hectare (640 ac.) plot of land is managed between NCC and the Edmonton & Area Land Trust. NCC acquired Bunchberry Meadows with the assistance of the Government of Canada’s Natural Areas Conservation Program.
