10 Ways to Save YEG Nature on Giving Tuesday

  1. Donate to, and share, our Giving Tuesday Campaign: Save YEG Nature

    Click here to donate to Save YEG Nature. Your donation will help EALT care for 2,243 acres of nature, and will add even more to that total. You can even donate in honour of someone to receive a digital 4x6 image with details of the donation’s impact, which you can choose to send as a digital stocking stuffer, or print and slip into a loved ones stocking!

  2. Retweet to have $10 Donated to EALT on Your Behalf!

    On Giving Tuesday, Nov 27th visit @Benevity and retweet the video that is pinned to the top of their profile. You must select “retweet with comment” and mention @EdAreaLandTrust in your tweet. It’s that simple! Benevity will donate $10 to EALT, on your behalf!

  3. Get your stocking stuffers from the EALT Online Shop.

Click here to visit EALT’s Online Shop. Our most popular item is the Pollinator Bundle, which includes ID guides for Butterflies, Bees, and Moths, along with a bonus reusable bag and Protecting Pollinators pamphlet! The runners up are our popular Nature’s Nourishment Cook Book, and Nature Kit for Kids. A hidden gem in the store, that won’t fit in a stocking, is the gorgeous Wolf Intarsia Mosaic which was donated by a very talented volunteer with 100% proceeds going to EALT’s conservation efforts!

4. Go shopping for EALT products at Meika’s Birdhouse.

Meika’s Birdhouse is located in Sherwood Park and sells products made by EALT volunteers, to support local conservation efforts. You will find Chickadee Nest Boxes, Tree Swallow Nest Boxes, Saw-whet Owl Boxes, and Bee Hotels here. All perfect gifts for the nature lover on your list!
