"The Government of Alberta is proposing Bighorn Country as a way to strengthen the existing management of the area," said Dan Merkowsky of the RVDA of Alberta.  "The goal is to ensure safe and positive outdoor recreation and tourism experiences; protect critical headwaters and the environment; and continue to support the opportunities this area provides to Albertans." 

Dan Merkowsky further stated, "Bighorn Country includes the designation of a new Wildland Provincial Park and new, expanded or amended parks, recreation areas, and Public Land Use Zones.

"The proposed Bighorn Country would support policy integration, direction and clarity needed to help guide decisions that collectively reflect and support the needs and values of Albertans."

Further information on the proposal and an online survey are available at talkaep.alberta.ca.

Comments will be collected until January 31st, 2019.
