Stewards share an interest in protecting Alberta's natural heritage and help monitor conservation efforts in Alberta's parks system. Since the program’s inception in the late 1980’s, nearly 300 individual stewards and 60 organizations have participated in this initiative in more than 130 sites.
Stewards independently help monitor conditions at select sites. Many of these sites are remote or undeveloped. Their observations alert us to the unique management needs of the sites they observe. Information from their site inspection reports is used to update our site database and informs local management decisions.
Both individuals and organizations can be stewards.
Eligible individuals should:
Eligible groups should be a registered society under the Societies Act (Alberta).
In some situations, specific authorizations may be provided to individuals or organizations associated with the Steward program to undertake special projects (e.g. sign installation, site clean-ups, vegetation control, trail maintenance). All authorizations must be obtained prior to commencing work.
Please Note: We are not currently accepting interest in Steward assignments.
