The Bighorn Backcountry is one of Alberta’s last intact wilderness spaces, and it deserves protection

The stunning landscape of the Bighorn Backcountry is home to sensitive and endangered species such as grizzly bears, mountain goats, bull trout and whitebark pine trees. This mountainous area with rushing creeks, and picturesque lakes offers Albertans amazing outdoor recreational opportunities, and important ecosystem services such as protection from floods and droughts. The area also provides 88% of the water used by Edmonton and other downstream communities. Unfortunately, the Bighorn is currently threatened by industrial activities such as coal mining leases, oil and gas development, forestry, and inappropriate and destructive recreational activities.

We must protect the Bighorn, from the Forestry Trunk road west to the National Park boundaries as a Wildland Provincial Park in order to protect sensitive wilderness and wildlife and to ensure Edmonton's water is clean, safe and secure for ourselves and future generations!

We must protect the Bighorn as a Wildland Provincial Park in order to ensure Edmonton's water is clean, safe and secure for ourselves and future generations!  Wildland Provincial Parks preclude new industrial development while allowing activities like hiking, camping, hunting, fishing, and biking

We encourage you to adjust our template to make it personal, or write your own letter for more impact!
