Welcome

The Ann & Sandy Cross Conservation Area (ASCCA) is a 4,800 acre day use natural area and nocturnal preserve. It is located just southwest 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 without jeopardizing wildlife and habitat
  • Managing human use of the area and limiting impact through a series of guidelines

We are located at 20-194001 160 Street West, Foothills AB T1S 4K9.

We would like to acknowledge that the Ann & Sandy Cross Conservation Area is on the traditional territory of the Blackfoot Nations, which includes the Siksika, the Piikani, and the Kainai.  We also acknowledge the Tsuut’ina and Stoney Nakoda First Nations, the Métis Nation (Region 3) and all peoples who make their homes in the Treaty 7 region of Southern Alberta.
