Thank you to our wonderful sponsors of River Valley Conservation Projects in Lethbridge: Pratt & Whitney Canada, Alberta Conservation Association, and Pattison Broadcast Group (B93 & Country 95)!

Please note: the delayed spring start has slowed the sending of this email to past participants. We know that walking off trail on wet coulee slopes can be dangerous for participants AND it can cause considerable damage to the coulees themselves. In an effort to do no harm and minimize our footprint during our conservation projects, we are asking participants to consider planning their clean-ups into May.

Please let me know if you have any questions! I look forward to connecting again soon.

All the best,
