Steward an Acre

When you Steward an Acre in Glenbow Ranch Provincial Park, you protect land right here at home in the Bow River Valley. Your gift will preserve more than 3,200 acres of plants and animals, wetlands, riverbanks, and forests. These crucial habitats are hard at work reducing our risk of floods, cleaning our water, stopping erosion, and storing vast amounts of carbon to keep our communities healthy and resilient in the face of climate change.

Each Steward an Acre sponsorship costs $150 and will help care for an acre of Glenbow Ranch Provincial Park for three years. One hundred percent of your contribution to Steward an Acre goes directly toward the Glenbow Ranch Park Foundation’s vital work to protect the park and preserve its fragile ecosystem and contributes to ongoing conservation programming and education.
