This fund supports the monitoring of a conservation easement on 100 acres of mixedwood forest by the Edmonton and Area Land Trust (EALT), a registered charity that conserves nature in Edmonton and area and engages people and communities in land conservation and stewardship.
This privately-owned land is in one of Parkland County’s Ecologically Significant Areas and is part of the geologically significant Devon Dunes, a post-glacial dune field area with permeable sandy surface soils. The land is a relatively undisturbed complex of wetlands and upland dunes, with habitat for waterfowl and wetland birds. It is almost entirely forested and some of the spruce trees are around 100 years old, making this old growth forest excellent habitat for birds, mammals and other wildlife.
“My family has lived on and cared for this unique and exceptionally beautiful piece of land for over 50 years, and as a result it has become very special to us. It is rare to find a piece of the parkland ecosystem that has never been cleared or developed in any way.” Landowner.
Your donation to this endowment fund will help EALT monitor the conservation easement that protects this important piece of parkland in perpetuity.
