Proposed coal mines in the Eastern Slopes are raising concerns amongst many Albertans — you may be one of them. This is also an issue that deeply concerns us here at Y2Y.
The Eastern Slopes are a critical part of the Yellowstone to Yukon vision. This region contains the richest biodiversity in the province, houses watersheds that supply drinking water to millions, and supports local ranching and recreation economies. But from a Y2Y large-landscape perspective, it is so much more!
Join us Wednesday, March 3 at 6 p.m. Mountain Time and hear from our team of Y2Y conservation experts on:
- the local and cross-border impacts coal mines would have on watersheds, wildlife, ranchers and recreationists;
- the implications of the reinstatement of the 1976 Coal Policy and why your voice is even more important now; and
- what Y2Y is doing to address these and other pressing issues facing Alberta.
