Although we do not receive operating subsidies, one significant source of funds to our facility has been lottery funds made available through the Province of Alberta. The most significant contribution came in 2005 with a $250,000 contribution from the Alberta Centennial Legacy Program. This grant made possible the construction of our Alberta Centennial Natural History Centre which opened August 29th, 2007.
In 2008 our organization also received $75,000 of lottery funds through Community Initiative Program for the purchase of educational multi-media equipment including a new vehicle. The province is appreciative of our wildlife conservation efforts by supporting us through funds from Alberta Lotteries.
