In the Northern Sagebrush Steppe, pronghorn undertake daily and seasonal migratory movements to meet life requirements. Across this region, highways fragment the landscape and cause direct mortality and/or disrupt movement pattern. Several conservation groups are collaborating and working toward a safer landscape for pronghorn in Alberta, Saskatchewan and northern Montana.
Join us to learn more about Pronghorn Xing, a citizen science program developed to engage the public in identifying seasonal migratory pinch points and how conservation organizations, such as the Nature Conservancy of Canada, will use this information as a means to secure and steward conservation lands to allow for more connectivity for pronghorn migration and strategies for safer movement.
Space is limited.

Natural Area Manager - Prairie Grasslands
Nature Conservancy of Canada, Alberta Region
Leta Pezderic grew up in Claresholm, Alberta, and then moved to Lethbridge to pursue her post-secondary education. She received her diploma in renewable resource management as well as a certificate in fish and wildlife technology from Lethbridge College. From there, she transferred to the University of Lethbridge where she obtained her degree in environmental science. Leta spent her summers working in Waterton Lakes National Park. After graduating, she was fortunate to work at a variety of places, including Cows and Fish, Lethbridge College and Alberta Environment. She spent nearly seven years with the Oldman Watershed Council as their program coordinator before joining the Nature Conservancy of Canada team in 2015 as the natural area manager for prairie grasslands. She is passionate about all things nature and tries to capture its beauty through photography; you’ll rarely find her without her camera in hand. Leta feels privileged to get to partner with stewards of the land working on initiatives to protect grassland species through the conservation of their habitat. She and her husband have put down their roots in the coulees north of Coaldale, along the Oldman River — the perfect place for their three boys and all their critters to roam free!
