The Edmonton River Valley Conservation Coalition is a group of citizens who are passionate about preserving our city’s greatest treasure. We are a coalition of conservationists, runners, cyclists, scientists, artists, and proud Edmontonians.
Our philosophy: We support conservation and restoration of Edmonton’s NSRV and ravine system, through a systems-level focus on biodiversity, ecological integrity of the corridor, and history. This philosophy reflects the river valley bylaw, which states as its first goal: “to ensure preservation of the natural character and environment of the North Saskatchewan River Valley and its Ravine System” (2.2).
Our aim: To facilitate communication, learning, and cooperation amongst river valley conservation groups; to work together in an organized way to advocate for the conservation and restoration/regeneration of Edmonton’s NSRV and ravine system through participation at public hearings, public education, and political advocacy.
