DECOMPRESSING IN DECEMBER!
December is a hectic season, with joy, stress, excitement and pressure all jumbled into our already busy schedules. One of the most effective ways to decompress and be rejuvenated is to get out in nature. Fortunately for those of us living in Central Alberta, nature is literally at our doorstep. Walking trails thread through the City of Red Deer and surrounding smaller towns, the Great Trail links several communities, and there are many local rural protected properties that can be enjoyed.
There are a total of 169 protected properties within 100 km of Red Deer, all listed here on this website. We have chosen three that we feel will be especially interesting to explore in December. The Cliff and Mary Soper Natural area is readily accessible and has facilities (e.g., outhouses, walking trails, signage) while the other two are a bit more challenging.
