Habitat Legacy Partnership (HLP)

The Habitat Legacy Partnership was born five years ago with an idea that had at its basis upland wildlife habitat restoration and enhancement in an area that was being ignored for the most part in the far reaches of southern Alberta. Pheasants Forever Calgary approached the Alberta Conservation Association (ACA) to see if we could partner in protecting existing habitat as well as enhancing and restoring habitat that was gradually disappearing. PF Calgary would provide funding and ACA would provide the experience from their team of biologists and range management specialists located in the Lethbridge office. The area that would be concentrated on initially would be the Lethbridge to Medicine Hat corridor to the Montana border. Since this partnership was started the group has been expanded to include the Chinook Chapter of Pheasants Forever in Medicine Hat, the Lethbridge PF Chapter and several chapters of the Alberta Fish and Game Association.
