Welcome To Glenbow Ranch Park Foundation

Giving Tuesday November 28, 2023

Did you know: Only 1% of the remaining grasslands in Alberta and Saskatchewan are protected. Protecting and restoring remaining grasslands is critical to keeping greenhouse gases in the ground, providing habitats for declining grassland species, while recognizing Indigenous title and rights? November 28th is Giving Tuesday. We ask that this year you think about supporting Glenbow Ranch Park foundation and its effort to conserve!

About Glenbow Ranch Park Foundation

Glenbow Ranch Park Foundation (GRPF) is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to the protection and preservation of Glenbow Ranch Provincial Park (GRPP) and other lands that possess important heritage and ecological value. Established in 2007 by the Harvie Family, our Mission is to protect and promote Glenbow Ranch Provincial Park through engagement, education, collaboration and conservation.

Glenbow Ranch Provincial Park is located on the lands of Treaty 7 territory. We acknowledge the past, present, and future generations of the Stoney Nakoda Nations, the Tsuut’ina, the Blackfoot Confederacy (Siksika, Kainai, and Piikani), and the Metis Nation (Region 3) who help us steward these lands, as well as honour and celebrate this place. In the spirit of reconciliation, we recognize the continued importance of these lands to all who make their home in the Treaty 7 region of Southern Alberta.
