Dates of existence


Big Lake Environment Support Society was formed in St. Albert, Alberta in 1991. Its aims include raising the interest of the public in Big Lake, and making available recreational activities on or near the lake such as walking trails, canoe trips, and bird-watching. Environmental education for children is another activity. Another aim is to protect the natural wildlife habitat on and near the lake. A shelter in Red Willow Park and a viewing platform were built, and fund-raising activities such as an auction and dinner, and a Winter Fest were held in some years to raise money. Other activities included a project to dig up the Purple Loosestrife by the river valley. B.L.E.S.S. was a leader in the campaign to prevent the Western Boundary Bypass from being built at Big Lake.
