Alberta

The Nature Conservancy of Canada's first project in Alberta was the acquisition of Wagner Bog in 1970: 320 acres (130 hectares) of highly significant wetland habitat. Since then we have completed more than 200 projects that protect more than 234,000 acres (94,700 hectares) of this province's most ecologically significant land and water. Today, the Alberta Region continues to work with our partners to protect and steward Alberta's natural heritage.
