National Prairie Day
According to National Day Calendar, National Prairie Day celebrates the beauty and ecological value of this often-overlooked ecosystem. Glenbow Ranch is 3,200 acres of native fescue grassland!! It is a special place to enjoy stunning vistas, rolling hills, and you might spot the occasional cowboy as you explore nearly 40 km of paved and shale path – all a stones throw from Calgary and Cochrane. In partnership with Alberta Parks, they maintain the health of the Park’s fragile ecosystem through a robust and effective Vegetation Management Program.
Let’s celebrate with them on National Prairie Day! Do you know that for $150.00, you can Steward an Acre to help care for an acre at Glenbow Ranch Provincial Park for three years? One hundred percent of your contribution to Steward an Acre goes directly toward the Glenbow Ranch Park Foundation’s vital work to protect the park and preserve its fragile ecosystem and contributes to ongoing conservation programming and education.
