Wetlands 

wetlandFor most Albertans, the word wetland brings an image to mind. Some may picture a beaver quietly going about its work of building a lodge, or a flock of Canada geese feeding on a crisp fall morning. Others may imagine areas that are difficult to move through with their tractor or truck. The diversity of attitudes towards wetlands are as great as the functions and values wetlands provide. Attitudes have changed over time and with those changes have come new challenges on how to deal with wetlands in Alberta.
