Re-energizing the Dream - Inglewood Wildlands
The Inglewood Wildlands is a work
in progress – 34 hectares of land in the heart of the Inglewood
Community are undergoing a slow transformation from an industrially
contaminated site to a natural wildland.
The land has changed dramatically in the 100 years
since permanent human settlement began here. It has been transformed
from a native hunting ground, to a homestead, to an oil refinery
that created an industrial wasteland and now to a natural environment
Here unique opportunities exist to educate Calgary
and area residents of all ages about the history of this site,
the success of the cooperative reclamation efforts and
us by witnessing and participating in this exciting transformation
as the land goes full circle back to a wildland.
