Just like premier Lougheed did with Kananaskis Country – premier Notley is seizing the opportunity to create something special. That something special is the Bighorn Country.
The Government of Alberta is proposing Bighorn Country as a way to strengthen the existing management of the area. The goal is to ensure safe and positive outdoor recreation and tourism experiences; protect critical headwaters and the environment; and continue to support the opportunities this area provides to Albertans. Bighorn Country includes the designation of a new Wildland Provincial Park and new, expanded or amended parks, recreation areas, and Public Land Use Zones.
The proposed Bighorn Country would support policy integration, direction and clarity needed to help guide decisions that collectively reflect and support the needs and values of Albertans.
The Alberta Government is currently surveying Albertans for your input on the Bighorn Country proposal.
Further information on the proposal and an online survey are available at https://talkaep.alberta.ca/bighorn-country
