EALT’s 1st Securement of 2015

EALT is working on finalizing the acceptance of a very special piece of natural space. This pristine parcel was bequested to EALT. We look forward to sharing this natural area with our supporters and the area’s residents as a worthy addition to our network of natural areas in the YEG region. More information to come this spring.

Fisher Spotted at Glory Hills


EALT has many Wildlife Cameras set up on our properties, which take a series of pictures when animals pass by. These cameras are important for monitoring and documenting species of wildlife that live on our lands, like this elusive Fisher. 
Fishers are one of the only animals able to hunt porcupines.

Meet an EALT Volunteer: Tony Sneep

"Because of my natural interests and personal priorities, I thought EALT was a good organization committed to the environment, and preserving land for the use and enjoyment of people, birds and animals. I wanted to support EALT in doing their work so I started to volunteer.
When volunteering, I meet people also committed to nature and preservation and build new relationships and in some cases strengthen relations with those I have met previously. I get to spend a day in a beautiful environment, get some physical exercise and have fun. While doing our work I have seen things like a large bull moose, a blue heron rookery, and at lunchtime, I have a chance to check out the birds in the area.
For those that are physically able, I encourage you to come and join us." Read Tony’s full story here.
