Everyday the grasslands of our province provide gifts of vast biodiversity, rich cultural heritage and essential ecosystem services. And yet, only 1.29% of Alberta’s 95,565 km2 grasslands natural region exists protected under legislation. What gives??? And how and why should you and your students care? Together, CPAWS Southern Alberta and the perspectives and lessons of those who inhabit and define our grasslands—from indigenous voices to species at risk—will reveal how responsibility and relationships lie at the heart of why grasslands matter now and forever.
