Stories featured this week include:
Equine Conservation Officers
Before Alberta Parks Conservation Officers can head out on the trail with their equine partners, they participate in a mandatory four-day course. It teaches them (and their horses) to be ready for the unexpected - whether in the back country or in a crowd of people.
Energy in Action - building bird houses
We visited some Grade 4 kids at St. Matthew's School in Rocky Mountain House who were learning about wildlife habitat and nesting sites. Then they got busy making some bird houses of their own!
Outdoor Guide - access to private properties
The FireSmart program in the Lesser Slave Lake region is educating homeowners on what they can do to lessen the wildfire hazard and protect their properties.
