Season Two - Episode 6

Stories featured this week include:

Waterfowl nesting
Elma gains hands-on experience with the ACA's waterfowl nesting habitat enhancement program - building nesting boxes, choosing locations for them and assisting in placement.

AFGA Camp
A retreat near Millet run by the Alberta Fish and Game Association gives some youngsters great memories to last a lifetime. Trapshooting, hunter education, firearm safety and water sports not only develop skills but are a whole lot of fun!

Minimizing impact
At the Evergreen Centre for Resource Excellence & Innovation near Grande Prairie, energy companies collaborate with local contractors on new ideas for minimizing the environmental impacts when constructing roads and water crossings.

Equine Conservation Officers
Before Alberta Parks Conservation Officers can head out on the trail with their equine partners, they participate in a mandatory four-day course. It teaches them (and their horses) to be ready for the unexpected - whether in the back country or in a crowd of people.
Energy in Action - building bird houses
We visited some Grade 4 kids at St. Matthew's School in Rocky Mountain House who were learning about wildlife habitat and nesting sites. Then they got busy making some bird houses of their own!

Outdoor Guide - access to private properties
Brad Fenson shows us how to approach private landowners for permission to gain access for activities such as hunting or berry picking on their land. Positive landowner relations are critical for everyone.

Getting FireSmart
The FireSmart program in the Lesser Slave Lake region is educating homeowners on what they can do to lessen the wildfire hazard and protect their properties.
