Lakeland’s Time

October 8, 2012

Wild Lands Advocate article, August 2012, by Carolyn Campbell. An argument for why right now is the ideal time to extend Lakeland Provincial Park and Recreation Area, and establish protected areas within the Cold Lake Air Weapons Range.

“With intense international attention focused on Alberta’s oil sands region, there is an opportunity for the new Alberta government to create an outstanding legacy by better protecting one of the treasures of Alberta’s southern boreal forest: the Lakeland area.”

“Restoring and maintaining a healthy boreal ecosystem in Lakeland is possible, and the time is right for the Alberta government to make this happen.”

There is an urgent need to engage people with nature. All aspects of it. Not just the pretty bears and cute snakes. Also the realities of it, the death, struggles, and pain. Not only are people losing touch with nature, they are losing touch with the realities of nature.
