Environmental Organizations Edmonton
The Sierra Club Prairie chapter in Edmonton brings together environmental organizations to provide opportunities for folks to join a community and advocate for the environment in ways that best suit their capabilities. We emphasize democratic grassroots organization and believe the best way to advocate for the environment is to nurture a relationship with nature. We take decision-makers on tours of local areas as an effective and meaningful way to value the land and build relationships.
We recently ran a series of 1-2 hour walks through the nature areas of Edmonton (such as the River Valley or Mill Creek Ravine) sponsored by the Alberta Ecotrust. These were Indigenous led walks and conversations about the land and history, and even stories and poems were shared.
The University of Alberta, in conjunction with Sierra Club Canada’s Prairie Chapter, is also researching nature-based climate solutions for agricultural communities in Southern Alberta. The project seeks to identify nature-based solutions that can be adopted or implemented in agricultural practices which would help reduce greenhouse gas emissions from the sector.
Our Wild Child Edmonton kids outdoor education program brings fun environmental education and encourages staff and children to get outside, play games and age appropriate activities to learn about their environment and the other critters they share their community with.
