JJ Collett Foundation
The JJ Collett Natural Area is 640 acres of natural habitat located in Central Alberta. It consists of 18 kilometers of trails that are utilized the by the general public and students of the Wolf Creek School Division for the Grade 6 educational program, which is based on the Provincial science curriculum for over 450 students in the division. They also offer Spring and Fall guided tours for the general public, identifying local plants and animals in the area. Their mandate is to utilize the area for environmental and educational purposes.
In the Fall of 2018, the Red Deer & District Community Foundation was able to grant the JJ Collett Foundation $1600.00 from the Smart and Caring Community Fund towards the repair and reconstruction of a bridge that runs over one of the creeks in the area. There are approximately 10,000 people who use the trail and subsequently, the bridge, annually, plus the 450 students from the Wolf Creek School Division.
