Naturalization helps preserve and celebrate the natural plant and animal species found in our region.
Parts of parks and open spaces in Sturgeon County are being naturalized through the reintroduction of native plant species. Not only will this make the park more beautiful, the trees and shrubs will provide shade, shelter from the wind, help stop flooding, and attract more wildlife and other plants to the park.
Naturalization also brings beauty to our environment, creating new spaces for residents to connect with nature. Check out our most recent Naturalization projects below.
With help from Fortis Alberta and our Sturgeon crew, 1,800 native trees and shrubs were planted in Cardiff Park this spring. The naturalization of Cardiff Park is one way that Sturgeon County is working to protect our land, air, and water through simple, responsible practices that make both economic and environmental sense. Thanks again to Fortis Alberta for helping to fund this project and to make Cardiff Park an even better place to now and in the years to come.
