Help Make a Difference Today
The Alberta government plans to close 20 park sites and delist 164 others, citing low visitor numbers and savings of $5 million (which equate to $1.14 per Albertan). Once these parks are delisted they no longer have any protection and can be converted into Crown Land, which does not have the same environmental and recreational protections as parks. Once we lose our parks, they're gone forever.
The I Use Alberta Parks campaign was launched to help stop the loss of these parks. We are a group of concerned Albertans who love the wilderness and outdoor opportunities that our beautiful province has to offer. We want to demonstrate to the Alberta government that people love and use these parks - there is no good reason to shut them down.
How can you help? You can make a difference by simply showing that you visited a provincial park in Alberta. Whether you live in Alberta or not, if you have recently used one of the sites proposed for defunding let the Alberta government know that you use Alberta Parks.

By filling out the following form you will enable us to gather the required data to show that the claims that these areas are under-utilized are simply false.
If you input a postal code, once your survey has been submitted a form email will be sent to your MLA to let them know that you value and use the parks in your area.
ADOPT A PARK
Put up a Poster
We need to spread awareness of the I Use Alberta Parks movement to get as many people as possible involved.
You can help by adopting a park! When you adopt a park you commit to two easy steps that make a big difference:
Sign up in the form below to print off a poster at home and put it up at the park’s trailhead.
Visit the park from time to time to replace the poster if it wears out.
