AWA Briefing Notes re Onefour Research Farm Closure

June 14, 2013

The closure of the Onefour Research Farm is part of plans the federal government has announced. The current federal lease for the research farm operations do not expire for some time, however the federal government may choose to surrender the lease back to the province of Alberta at any time. AWA believes the announcement, the time we have before the lease expires and the pending South Saskatchewan Regional Plan provide both threats and opportunities for conservation of this vastly important native prairie grassland.

A healthy relationship to the wilderness is not in the least incompatible with civilized living. Indeed, I believe it to be an indispensable condition thereof; that no man is truly civilized unless he is involved in and cares for the wilderness.
