Response to COVID-19 pandemic and updates from the Ann & Sandy Cross Conservation Area

To our volunteers, donors and neighbours,

The coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic has impacted all of our lives in some manner or another, forcing us to make changes to prevent its spread.

The Ann & Sandy Cross Conservation Area, along with many other organizations, has postponed education programs until the current situation changes.

As many are limiting their contact with others and avoiding public places, we encourage everyone to enjoy the outdoors and experience the health benefits of time spent in nature. The ASCCA will remain open for hiking and snowshoeing. To add to your visit, we have interpretive signs along our Fescue and Aspen trails to guide your hike.

Please note that we do not allow dog-walking, skiing or biking in the area. For a full list of our guidelines as a conservation area, please visit our website .

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out. If we are not in the office, the best means of contact is by emailing info@crossconservation.org . Please call 403-612-5526 in the event of an emergency or issue you think we should be aware of.

We wish you and your loved ones all the best in these uncertain times.
