Our Clients in Environment

The Pioneer Trail North Foundation

Is a not-for-profit company providing land-based learning, centred on conservation, biodiversity and experience in the natural ecosystem. They work primarily with the local school division and organizations such as the Boys and Girls Clubs to help end “nature deficit disorder.” The organization owns an 80-acre parcel in the Ghost Horse Hills, 40 minutes from Edmonton and bordering a large provincial Natural Area, a small lake and a Nature Conservancy of Canada property. It has basic facilities such as a first aid station, storage for learning and recreational equipment, plus washrooms. There are also several kilometres of trails, a variety of teaching sites, both for nature and sustainable living skills, and for First Nations and Métis teachers. SEF has provided mortgage renewal for the organization.
