Located only 45 kilometres from Edmonton, the Golden Ranches conservation area features 354 hectares of wetlands, mature aspen forest and open grassland. The area serves as a vital link in creating a conservation corridor connecting other nearby protected areas. The varied habitats here attract a diversity of animals, including white-tailed deer, grouse, moose and songbirds. The conservation area is also special place for hiking and connecting to nature.

You will help remove invasive plants from the property and prevent them from taking over the native plant communities. You’ll work as a team, strategically pulling targeted invasive species to reduce their density. Afterward, we’ll gather by the scenic Cooking Lake shoreline for a guided sunset photography session.
