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.
- It is committed to the professional and ethical Standards and Practices of the Canadian Land Trust Alliance
