Big Island Woodbend in Avenue Magazine


The Big Island Woodbend area is the feature of a new story in Avenue Magazine. Cailynn Klingbeil, in her piece, The Mysterious Island, talks to our board members and civic officials about this critical area, and plans underway to preserve it.

From the story:

“Few people visit the massive area, absent of any development, and most who do reach it by canoe. When they disembark, they find wilderness, and an accompanying stillness that makes it easy to forget they’re still standing within city limits. The landscape is diverse: there’s an old growth forest of poplar and white spruce, the only intact sand dunes in Edmonton, extensive natural wetlands, and ample habitat for deer, moose, porcupines and other creatures. Wildflowers are abundant.”
