Help plan an urban beach in Louise McKinney Park along Edmonton’s river front. The City of Edmonton is looking for your input on how this beach should look and be used by residents and visitors to our city. The urban beach will be an artificially created space in the city that looks and feels like a natural public beach without the ability to enter or go swimming in the river for safety reasons. The beach can provide a number of events or activities in the summer including wine tastings, movies, beach sports and food trucks. In the winter it could contribute to embracing Edmonton’s winter months with snowy activities and festivals. Drop in on one of the following dates to share your ideas: Tuesday June 11, 2013 11am–2pm Louise McKinney Park pavilion (lower park in front of the washrooms) Wednesday June 12, 2013 11am–2pm Churchill Square Saturday June 15, 2013 9am–noon Dr.

The Edmonton Valley Zoo is calling on Edmontonians to help decide the winner in the second annual Race for Animal of the Year. Race for Animal of the Year pairs four zoo residents with conservation programs and invites Edmontonians to pick their favourite animal by making a minimum donation of $2. Participants receive a button, and the thrill of participating in a fun and fictitious race, all for a good cause – supporting the zoo’s conservation work! The Edmonton Valley Zoo works with international organizations on ethical and strategic conservation projects, either actively raising animals in species survival programs or by raising money and awareness to support initiatives in other parts of the world. Edmontonians can vote for these zoo residents: Shaka the Grevy’s Zebra and the Grevy’s Zebra Trust Echo the Arctic Fox and Polar Bears International Sherri the Snow Leopard and the Snow Leopard Trust Rover the Children’s Python and Amphibian and Reptile Conservation Buttons can be purchased at the Edmonton Valley Zoo and the John Janzen Nature Centre.
