EALT Releases Country Meets Nature Brochure
Continuing with our lineup of educational brochures in the last several months, EALT has released another brochure entitled Country Meets Nature: How to protect natural areas in your rural neighborhood.
The brochure describes ways that people who live, work, or play in rural areas can help ensure that nature is protected. Natural areas provide many benefits to all people – whether in rural or urban areas – health benefits, economic benefits, community benefits, and of course environmental benefits such as providing clean air and water.
However, misuse of natural areas can be detrimental to people and wildlife, which is why we want to help inform residents about how to protect nature, and how nature can benefit them, and future generations.
This brochure was funded through a grant from the Alberta Government.
