WNAS Accomplishments in 2021 – The enthusiastic participation of many volunteers at our Spring and Fall clean-ups, as well as weeding sessions and other work bees, ensured our natural area continued to be well-maintained. The year 2021 saw the completion of a new website designed to be mobile-friendly, the installation of a new map and information signage at our trail head, our successful participation in a Parkland County public hearing to appeal a rural land development issue, the broadcasting of video interviews about Wagner on the CBC Our Edmonton program in early summer, and the inclusion of a presentation on Wagner Natural Area in the online ChitChat initiative of Nature Alberta in early winter.
