Nearly four months ago, I first had the opportunity to listen in on a virtual meeting of the Great Plains Conservation Network (GPCN) as a new Conservation Specialist with Alberta Wilderness Association. There, I had the pleasure of meeting a group of people strongly dedicated to the conservation of native prairie and our grasslands. It was inspiring and challenging, especially as I learned about all the involvement (and acronyms) of different people, projects and groups across the Great Plains.

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.
