Looking out for our land – thank you!
Environment and Parks staff asked the public’s assistance in identifying two men who were photographed dumping refuse on public lands.
In less than 24 hours, we had an overwhelming response. The link was shared across several platforms, resulting in information being forwarded to our compliance investigation staff.
As a reminder, leaving refuse behind on public lands is problematic for the environment and it deprives other Albertans from enjoying and using that space responsibly. As a rule of thumb for our environment – when in doubt, leave only footprints and take only pictures.
As Albertans, we have an important role in keeping our province’s public lands healthy and beautiful. If you witness misuse anywhere, at any time, please call the Environmental Hotline at 800-222-6514. If we all work together, we can put a stop to this kind of disrespectful behaviour.
