The Pride and the Passion

A history of the 1st 100 years of the Alberta Fish and Game Association

A history of the 1st 100 years of the Alberta Fish and Game Association

In my December column in the Alberta Outdoorsmen, I discuss the recently published book, Conservation Pride and Passion, The Alberta Fish and Game Association, 1908-2008 (2008, ISBN 978-0-9809772-0-2) that Duane Radford and I wrote and edited for the AFGA. The book chronicles how groups of concerned sports men and women banned together in small and large communities across the province to conserve the dwindling fish and game resources in the early 20th century. These groups eventually formed the Alberta Fish and Game Association in 1928 and continued to keep fish and wildlife conservation and environmental issues upfront in the minds of politicians and Albertans generally. As a result today we have vibrant fish and wildlife populations that provide much recreation for anglers, hunters and nature watchers.

Conservation Pride and Passion can be purchase through the Alberta Fish and Game Association.

So, what’s wrong with that?
