Bashaw Landfill Rehabilitation Project
The Bashaw Landfill Rehabilitation Project is located east of town of Highway 53. Watch for signs for Sitting Stone Lake.
Closed permanently as a landfill in 1999, this site is now the focus of the Bashaw Landfill Rehabilitation Project. Initiated by the Town of Bashaw and working in partnership with the Province of Alberta, County of Camrose, Ducks Unlimited, and the Buffalo Lake Naturalists Association, this innovative project is an ecologically responsible land use recovery, conversion, and conservation program.
By reintegrating the landfill site back into the surrounding physical prairie parkland landscape, the project promotes site recovery and preserves the long term sustainability of municipal lands while providing an enhanced habitation site for a diverse number of wildlife and plant species.
Accessible to the general public on a limited use basis, the project serves as an example of productive land use transition, illustrating how a modified environment can be remodified in order to offer a balance between the needs of humans and wildlife communities. For more information on this long term project, contact the Town of Bashaw at 780-372-3911.
