welcome

The Ann & Sandy Cross Conservation Area (ASCCA) is a 4,800 acre day use natural area.  It is located just south west of the city of Calgary in Alberta, Canada. The Cross Conservation Area is dedicated to:

  • protecting habitat and providing space for native species of wildlife,
  • offering conservation education programs (particularly to youth) without jeopardizing wildlife and habitat, and
  • managing human use of the ASCCA through 'entry by registration only’.
