April 19-25 was National Volunteer Week in Canada. On behalf of the Legacy team I would like to thank everyone who contributes to us through the year.

Volunteers give Legacy life. All of our progress, in some way or another, has been made possible by you amazing people who give your time and effort and funds to the organization. We wouldn’t be able to do conservation work without you.   
With your help, we have conserved 1352 acres of land, including about 2 km of the Little Red Deer River. We are currently working on protecting another 1158 acres of land that includes about 5 km of the Red Deer RiverWe have created 10 km of bluebird trail and have visited over 90 people as part of our Water Quality and You Program.
That’s something to be proud of folks! Keep up the great work.
Enjoy the newsletter.

Grazing Like It's 1799

A new ranching generation is taking cues from historical bison herds to help prairies, wildlife, and their businesses survive the next century.

Cows might not be an obvious solution for saving grassland birds, but they work.

Audubon’s Conservation Ranching Program collaborates with ranchers to practice rotational grazing, manage invasive species, and protect streams to enhance plant, insect, and bird diversity. 

Some Fish of the Red Deer River Watershed

As the spring arrives and life returns to the riparian zone, I’ve been thinking about some of the aquatic neighbours we have in Mountain View County and the Red Deer River watershed. 

Here’s an introduction to a few of the fish species you might encounter.
