What’s Happening in Redberry Lake Biosphere Reserve (RLBR)? L O O K I N G F O RWA R D VOLUME 19 SPRING 2012 I want to thank our Board of Directors for their confidence in my abilities to lead Redberry Lake Biosphere Reserve into it's next phase of activities and challenges. I am thankful for the opportunity to serve the community and to work with all of the organizations and municipalities that we are able to partner with within the Region of Redberry. I wish all of our producers a productive growing and grazing season along with financial success to all in our region. I look forward to continuing a dialogue with our residents in upcoming issues sharing some of the challenges coming our way.

Despite the challenges to come, we are not intending to give up projects we have been working on already or programs we are planning to implement. But we will need your support now more than ever to continue preserving nature, fostering sustainable development and educating kids and students in Redberry Lake Biosphere Reserve.
