Parks and Wildlife Ventures Program

Land Conservation

The natural areas and parks managed by the Recreation and Physical Activity Division provide habitat for wildlife, conserve water and provide recreational opportunities for the public. One of our priorities is conserving natural areas and wildlife habitat throughout Alberta. We encourage careful and responsible planning for continued growth in Alberta so future generations may enjoy our beautiful natural areas.

How We Conserve Natural Areas

The Park and Wildlife Ventures program supports private land conservation in Alberta through land management, partnerships with conservation groups, and consultative services.

Land Donations and Purchases

The Parks and Wildlife Ventures program is no longer accepting donations of land. We will continue to provide consultative services to those wishing to donate their lands and work with partner organizations to continue the protection of Alberta’s natural spaces. Explore the Alberta properties we currently own.

Teamwork

The Park and Wildlife Ventures program brings together landowners, community groups, industry, government agencies, non-government agencies, volunteers and donors to conserve valuable habitat. The program partners with other conservation agencies to manage lands, and to promote conservation in Alberta.

Monetary Donations

We accept funds on a project by project basis. For example, a donation in support of Peaceful Valley will only be used in the maintenance and operation of the Peaceful Valley Provincial Recreation Area and Day Use Lodge.

Donors may also take advantage of various planned giving tools, such as bequests through wills or life insurance policies.

Tax receipts for charitable donations are issued in accordance with Canada Revenue Agency regulations.
