Project Forest – Golden Ranches, our first initiative, is accepting partners.  Project Forest – Golden Ranches is located on the southeast shore of South Cooking Lake, with 55 hectares of land to be planted, up to 110160 seedlings can be accommodated. The Golden Ranches Conservation Area is owned and managed by the Nature Conservancy of Canada, Alberta Conservation Association, Alberta Fish and Game Association, and Edmonton and Area Land Trust. Project Forest’s professional foresters will determine a site-specific plan for the forest, which will include species native to the area like the white spruce, lodgepole pine, trembling aspen, willow and potentially tamarack. It’s just 30 minutes from Edmonton – which means Alberta businesses supporting the project can one day visit the forest they fund.
