Legacy Land Trust Society
Our goal is to build a community that shares a commitment to conservation and stewardship of the land.
Ecologically sensitive land, wildlife habitat and corridors, agricultural land, and significant historical and archeological sites are all of importance to Legacy.
We offer resources and support to those who share our goal — and we invite you to join our efforts.
Buttercup Blitz Is Back!
We're seeking Volunteers to help us pick Tall Buttercup on one of our conservation properties.
Legacy has a conservation agreement with the owners of this property and together we work to steward the land—in this case removing an invasive plant.
Tall Buttercup was introduced from Europe. It's classed as Noxious in Alberta. The plant contains a bitter, irritating oil that is toxic to livestock and other grazing animals. It spreads rapidly by seed and overtakes native vegetation.
Date: Thursday July 9, 2020
Time: 10 am - 12 noon. Break for lunch. We'll continue for another hour or so if people are keen. 😉 (P.S. Ice cream will be served!)
Location: Owl Ridge Conservation Easement, near Water Valley
We'll be working in a beautiful meadow or along wooded pathways. We'll be able to stay physically distanced but still enjoy each other's company.
If you'd like to join us, please contact Jordan Collin on our Contact page. We'll send you directions and a list of stuff to bring (like good gloves, boots, lunch).
