The City of Lethbridge needs to remove goldfish and koi out of Chinook Lake and Elma Groves stormpond. Goldfish and koi are non-native species introduced into lakes and stormponds that cause problems for the native species and the habitat.
For the past five summers, goats have been used to help control invasive weeds in select areas of the river valley, and since the introduction of the program over 750 hectares of invasive weeds have been grazed.
In celebration of International Pollinator Week, the City of Lethbridge is excited to be officially declared a Bee City by Bee City Canada! Bee City is a signature program of Pollinator Partnership Canada (P2C), a national organization dedicated to the protection and promotion of pollinators and their ecosystems through conservation, education, and research.
