Take the survey

The Municipality is currently planning a FireSmart Interpretive Trail project within the Urban Service Area.

The FireSmart Interpretive Trail will serve as a positive resource for the community, helping to connect residents with nature while also providing an opportunity to learn about the following topics:

  • FireSmart in the Wood Buffalo Region
  • Taking FireSmart action at home
  • Building with FireSmart in mind
  • Forest ecology 
  • Forest regeneration 

This project aligns with the 2017 RMWB Wildfire Mitigation Strategy.  

Public Engagement

Currently, we are in the first phase of public engagement for the FireSmart Interpretive Trail project. We invite residents to provide ideas, feedback and comments through the first public engagement session scheduled for:
 
Wednesday, August 28, 11 am – 4 pm (Urban Market – Jubilee Plaza)

The information, ideas and feedback gathered from you at this public engagement session will help to shape the design concepts for the FireSmart Interpretative Trail. 

Our plan is to return to the community for additional public engagement sessions following the first round of information gathering. Construction is tentatively scheduled the spring/summer of 2020. 

For more information or to connect directly with a member of the project team, please contact PULSE at rmwb.ca/pulse or 780-743-7000. We are available to discuss the project in further detail or to meet at any time to hear your thoughts on the FireSmart Interpretive Trail project.
