This endowment fund, established by the Russell family in 2011, supports the conservation and stewardship activities of 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.
“As a child I played in the Millcreek ravine catching tadpoles and looking and exploring the ravine. I also remember my father talking about his youth being out of doors; hearing the birds and enjoying the solitude. When I entered university I went into Biological sciences and have pursued this area for over 40 years, both in my career and as a volunteer, protecting and stewarding natural areas. When I became involved with the Edmonton and Area Land Trust, I thought it would be a great idea to establish a stewardship fund for conservation, so all of our
families’ children and grandchildren could continue to explore nature and enjoy the outdoors. When I presented the idea to my siblings they all agreed this would be a tribute to our family…” Margaret Reine (nee Russell)
