The City’s updated response to beaver/human interaction along Nose Creek

Oct. 22, 2022 / For immediate release

The City of Airdrie follows recommendations from the Province regarding wildlife management (including beavers) along the Nose Creek corridor and other water bodies in Airdrie.

"We've heard clearly from residents that they have concerns with the current wildlife management strategies,” said Mayor Brown. “We have also heard from residents that we need to properly manage wildlife and protect mature trees in the City."

The City considers it prudent to take a pause on the implementation of the current Provincial pest management practices to get further ecological expertise in the spring, with a specific focus on the local environment.

The City of Airdrie is contracting an environmental expert to conduct an assessment in Waterstone and other areas of the City and will create a strategy for how to best manage wildlife and protect trees in the City.
