About Us


Crooked Creek Conservancy (CCCSA) began in 1996 with a group of conservation-minded residents responding to the rapid industrialization of Athabasca County’s boreal forest.

    • It became a registered charity in 1998, and an Environment Canada Ecogift recipient in 2000.
    • It has some 20 members, including a few of the founding farmers, artists, conservation biologists, and other professionals. All are naturalists of a kind and advocates of healthy sustainable communities. We would welcome new members!  Please use our contact page.
    • It is a volunteer organization without a fixed office.
    • It focuses on the region surrounding the central Alberta town of Athabasca and a biodiverse watershed (” Crooked Creek”) to the north.
