Making Connections Between Urban and Wild Lands
While we often think of conservation in the context of remote wilderness areas, it is vital to look at the big picture and recognize that cities play an important part in biodiversity and water conservation. With more than 80% of Albertans living in urban areas, it is important to consider the role our cities and towns play in conserving biodiversity and water resources in the larger landscape.

Nose Hill: A Lifetime of Nature Connection
One of the flowing favorite places of my life has been Nose Hill Park. My mother and father were important in the fight to save it as a park in Calgary during the 1970s. Growing up, as kids, living in a nearby community, we played and explored there often. We also were regaled with stories of the “Spy Hill Jail” and dangerous men wandering about, maybe escaped convicts. It was this big beautiful hill of exploration and adventure and it also was an ominous place of danger. But mostly, it represented wonder, wildness and nature to kids growing up in an urban environment.

Thomas Porter: One Fateful Day - a return to nature
I used to be the guy with the nice house in suburbia, the double-car garage, white picket fence and two dogs. I was proud of my accomplishments and believed whole-heartedly that I deserved the ‘things’ that I had – things like a boat, a camper, a 4WD truck and a dirtbike.

CPAWS contributes recommendations to Minister’s Round Table on Parks Canada
Our national parks are supposed to be our most protected natural areas. Yet, for almost a decade CPAWS has observed a significant shift in Parks Canada's management of our national parks away from their legislative first priority of protecting nature towards a more tourism and marketing-focused agenda which is putting wildlife and wilderness in our national parks at risk.
