Piper Creek Restoration Agriculture Project

By: ReThink Red Deer

The Piper Creek Restoration Agriculture Project (PCRAP) is a publicly accessible site demonstrating riparian restoration and urban agriculture on the edge of Red Deer. Working together under a shared vision of “Cultivating a healthy environment for all creatures from soil to sky” the PCRA Project is a collaboration between many partners:

  • The City of Red Deer
  • Red Deer River Naturalists
  • Red Deer River Watershed Alliance
  • Living Lands Landscape and Design
  • Cows and Fish
  • Agroforestry and Woodlot Extension Society
  • Trout Unlimited
  • Waskasoo Environmental Education Society

Rene Michalak, Project Lead with ReThink Red Deer, was instrumental in developing the vision for the Piper Creek Restoration Agriculture Project, securing funding, and working together with community groups to make that vision a reality.
