It's Your Heritage

This is your heritage: clean water, blue skies, vast vistas, rolling native grasslands, cowboys, cattle and wildlife. And then the mountains; majestic backbone of North America. It has attracted and sustained Albertans and Native Peoples for generations but it's threatened.

Pekisko Group Wins SRM Award

The Society of Range Management (SRM) recently awarded the Pekisko Group the Outstanding Achievement Award in Land Stewardship at a ceremony of the SRM 66th Annual Meeting in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA. The SRM is a highly respected organization promoting the protection and health of rangelands. It has members from approximately 70 countries worldwide.

Read the Press Release on this award.

The Pekisko Group is an association of families bound together by the common vision of a healthy and prosperous future for southern Alberta. They see themselves as stewards of the land, and the land they steward is a special place. Many of the member ranches have been in the same family for multiple generations and for more than 100 years. The landscape is a mosaic of private and public land held under grazing lease. The land generates clean water, air, biodiversity and economic benefit for Albertans and will do so indefinitely if the right choices are made now.
