Management & Land-use

Alberta is renowned for its natural beauty and diversity. Landscapes vary from hot dry badlands to vast unbroken forests to alpine tundra and massive icefields. This diversity is represented in our current parks system.

Alberta's diversity and prosperity has created opportunities for our economy and people. It has also created challenges for Alberta's landscapes. This puts stress on the finite capacity of our land, air, water and habitat.  

Alberta's parks system is intended to preserve for all time the landscapes and natural features that represent the environmental diversity of our province while providing opportunities to experience and enjoy nature.

We manage provincial parks and their use through

Alberta Conservation Information Management System (ACIMS) is an important tool in providing information for planning and decision-making.
