Calgary, Alberta – Heartland Generation announces donation of the lands comprising of Big Knife Provincial Park to the Province t of Alberta in support of conservation, sustainability, and the communities where we live and work.
Heartland Generation is pleased to donate the lands comprising of Big Knife Provincial Park to the Province of Alberta and is working on opportunities to donate additional lands that may allow the province to expand the use of the park for all Albertans. This donation underscores Heartland Generation’s commitment to sustainability, conservation and the communities where we live and work.
Alberta’s parks and natural landscapes should be owned, operated, and shared in a way that supports the best interests and enjoyment of all Albertans and we believe the park is best stewarded by Alberta Environment and Parks.
