The Cochrane Environmental Action Committee has delivered dozens of programs and events since its inception in xx.
It is estimated that 70% of Alberta’s wetlands and 90% of Calgary’s wetlands have been eliminated to accommodate urban development and other human impacts.
CEAC has been a proud sponsor of the M.D. of Bighorn’s “Living in the Natural Environment” Speaker series. The event features presentations from environmental experts on topics of interest to residents.
Green Drinks is a relaxed, unstructured event where people interested in the environment, sustainability and community can get together to network, talk shop, learn, or share a story.
Partnering with Canada World Youth, CEAC helps deal with environmental issues through activities like weed pulls, wrapping trees along Big Hill Creek to protect them from beavers
By far CEAC’s largest involvement with a school is as a platinum sponsor for Cochrane High School Phase 1 and a gold sponsor for Phase 3 Sustainable Development Project.
Light pollution is light that shines where it is not needed or wanted. Typically, 30 to 50% of the light we produce is never used, shining sideways or upwards instead.
CEAC joined with the Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC) Thistle Pull event at the Toki property in Jumpingpound Creek, near Cochrane.
Environmental awareness and education are a cornerstone to CEAC’s mission. Over the years CEAC has focussed much effort with the schools in Cochrane through a wide range of projects and initiatives.
More than 160 engineers, developers, politicians, municipalities, biologists, researchers and stewardship groups gathered at the spectacular Cochrane RancheHouse
In 1998 with less than 10 days before a public hearing on a proposed Remediation Plan (RP) and development plans, CEAC worked hard to bring together information and constructive criticism, based on the information presented in the RP.
To celebrate its 20th anniversary CEAC sponsored an International Wildlife Film Festival at the Cochrane Ranchehouse Theatre on Saturday Nov 21st. CEAC worked with The International Wildlife Media Center & Film Festival (IWFF) out of Missoula, Montana to bring world class environmental films to Cochrane.
