THE CAUSE: The Crow Creative has always valued and contributed to our environment. We do this through annual donations to Ducks Unlimited Canada. Our money specifically is directed towards the John E. Poole Wetland that sits along the east shore of Big Lake just outside of St. Albert, connected to the Lois Hole Provincial Park. Big Lake is globally recognized as an Important Bird Area and provides critical habitat for thousands of nesting and migrating waterfowl and shorebirds.
At the site, DUC has established a forest trail, a wetland boardwalk with interpretive signs and critter dipping stations with the goal of providing hands-on wetland and environmental education, interpretation and exploration. JEP is also connected to the City of St. Albert’s established nature trail system. JEP is a popular field trip destination, and in the Spring of 2022, the site will become DUC-Alberta’s first Wetland Centre of Excellence.
