AWA Talk – On the Wrong Path: The Proposed Trails Act and how Trail Management Needs to Change

Bill 79, the Trails Act, fulfills a promise the United Conservative Party made in its 2019 election platform. However, this bill does so dangerously. This legislation opens the door to the privatization of recreation trails on public lands.

AWA is pleased to host Jason Unger, Director of the Environmental Law Centre, who will give an overview of the Trails Act and discuss what needs to happen to better plan and manage Alberta’s trail system. He will discuss key amendments that the Act requires.

Date: December 7, 2021
Time: 7:00 pm
Price: Free (registration required)

There is no fee for this evening, however we appreciate any donations you wish to make to AWA. All donations are eligible for a charitable tax receipt. Enter your gift amount below.

Keeping the Peace in Nature: Can we enforce our way into treating our public lands with greater civility?

Please join us as we present Wayne with AWA’s prestigious Wilderness and Wildlife Defenders Award, and hear from him on his vision for Alberta’s Public Lands.

I needed something to pare the fat off my soul, to make me grateful again for being alive. And I knew… There is nothing like a wilderness journey for rekindling the fires of life.
