Fish Rescue in Irrigation Canals

Send the Fish home!

Each fall, after the irrigation season has ended, thousands of fish are left stranded in the irrigation canals throughout Southern Alberta. TUC has been conducting annual fish rescues in these canals since 1998 with the help of thousands of volunteers.

Shoreline Clean-Up

Clean-up our creeks!

The shorelines of many of our local waterways are polluted with garbage or infested with invasive species. Garbage is harmful to local fish and wildlife populations and detracts from enjoyment of natural areas.

Native Tree and Shrub Planting

Green-up the local streambank!

Tree and shrub planting activities are a great way for groups to get their hands dirty, green-up the local environment, and help build resilience to climate change.

Biological Sampling

An Electrifying experience!

Stream science plays an important role in understanding the conditions of habitat in and around waterbodies. Volunteers interested in biological sampling can Join TUC biologists as they sample a local creek to assess the types and population of aquatic species and monitor stream water quality.

Invasive Species Management

Stop the spread of invasive species!

It is vital to control the spread of invasive species to maintain and sustain native species in the host environment. There are many invasive species that deter the growth of native species.

Storm Drain Painting

Only rain goes down the drain!

Under Storm Drain Painting program, corporate groups will have an opportunity to paint storm drains throughout a local neighborhood, for a full or half day.

Ice Fishing and Water Quality Assessment 

Catch and release the fish!

Making most of the winter months, Ice Fishing is the ideal activity to enjoy the outdoors and learn about state of water quality around that time of the year.

Family Fun Days

Bringing Communities together!

This outdoor program welcomes corporate staff and their families to participate in a community fun event and learn about conservation and sustainable practices in a relaxing environment.
