The fine print
Check the Guide carefully before planning your trip. Please ensure you consult a county or
municipal landowner map to verify the location of the conservation site and double check that
you are entering onto the appropriate property.
While there is no fee to access these conservation sites, all we ask is that you value and respect
the land as much as we do. The conservation sites identified in this guide are either private
lands owned by Alberta Conservation Association or our conservation partners (see the
Partners listed for each site), or public lands that are managed by Alberta Conservation
Association on behalf of the Crown; all are available for public use.
A majority of conservation sites in the guide require no permission to access and allow only
non-motorized recreational activities including hunting, fishing, hiking, bird watching and
photography. However, please be aware that some of the conservation sites listed do have
restrictions on permitted activities or require permission before you enter onto the site.

Thank you to our partners
This guide was made possible through the support of our conservation partners and Corporate
Partners in Conservation who aid in the securement of private land and the enhancement of
public land for conservation and recreational opportunities. Several properties featured here
have also been generously donated to Alberta Conservation Association by private landowners
across Alberta, an enduring legacy for which generations of Albertans will be thankful. We
would like to thank the Alberta Fish & Game Association and its affiliated clubs as well as Ducks
Unlimited Canada for including a number of their conservation sites in this guide.

Ratings and Reviews
No more pheasant sites?!?
App used to have the option to search amongst only the Pheasant Release sites. Was really handy for pheasant hunters. Really unfortunate that they seem to have removed this function. Can’t imagine why.
Wish I could search areas by WMU. The website lists what WMU and area is in but the app doesn’t. Wish I could search the app and site by WMU
Wouldn’t even bother
I tried typing in my area, fishing, and 250km and nothing showed up. Tried a couple other times and switched up the search and still nothing worked.
