From April 29 to May 2, cities around the world participated in the 2022 City Nature Challenge (CNC). This annual event celebrates biodiversity and encourages people to get out and explore their own backyards while contributing valuable ecological data through citizen science.

We have spectacular wilderness in Alberta, much of it under some form of protection. Every square millimetre of it has had to be fought for - will always have to be fought for, forever and ever. The struggle to retain and repair wilderness is conducted not just by a few individuals, but by large numbers of committed people, from all walks of life, all working in various ways toward the same end. We need to be grateful to all of them.
