AOHVA makes formal submission to Alberta Environment and Parks; Castle Parks Draft Management Plan

The Government of Alberta is currently enacting the biggest change to land use in the province in 30 years. With that in mind, AOHVA took the opportunity to provide the government with some important insight and information. It is our hope that AOHVA and the Government of Alberta, Environment and Parks will work together to establish a foundation from which to fortify Alberta’s parks and public spaces, ensuring they are places all Albertans can enjoy.


ACESS submits proposal for Castle Draft Management Plan

The Alberta Committee for Eastern Slopes Stewardship (ACESS) has prepared this proposal for a model of open camping within the Castle Parks area. This proposal is designed to address the existing demand for open (random) access camping within the Castle Parks area in an economically and environmentally sustainable manner to providing the diverse camping experiences Albertans currently engage in.
