Lac La Biche County has many programs in place to protect, preserve and promote air, water and land quality and reduce everyone’s environmental footprint. Many of these programs are also designed to help residents do whatever they can to protect the environment in and around their property.
- Curbside pickup, closure of landfills, recycling, composting and other initiatives are substantially reducing the impact of waste on land and water in the County.
- A County Watershed Management Plan sets expectations for water habitat and shoreline protection within County boundaries. Environmental reserves protect water habitat by creating buffer zones between private lots and a stream or lake bed and shore. This prevents pollution while allowing public access. Live on a lake lot? Do your part to protect water quality and the environment.
- A new sewage treatment plant greatly enhances the quality of water being returned to the river.
Mad About Science are free summer day camps where youth aged 6 to 12 have the opportunity to explore science and learn more about waste management and the environment through hands-on activities, cool experiments, great games and fantastic prizes. Mad about Science elements are also part of the County’s Fun in the Sun summer camps. Email or call us for more information and to register.
