The Inglewood Bird Sanctuary has been one of The City’s most ecologically important parks for nearly 90 years. However, its age has resulted in some important work becoming necessary. Some of the hydraulic structures that control the water level in the lagoon have passed their useful life and are putting the park’s lagoon at risk.
Reconnecting the lagoon to the river would improve water quality, reduce water level fluctuations in the lagoon, as well as improve fish habitat.
This project is still in the early design stages and will not start construction until winter 2020 at the earliest.
The City will be hosting an information session about the Inglewood Bird Sanctuary Erosion Mitigation and Fish Habitat Project on Saturday, February 16, 2019, from 10 a.m. – 11 a.m. at the Bird Sanctuary (2425 9 Ave S.E.).
There will be a short presentation on the project at 10 a.m. with time for questions and discussion afterward. If you are interested in learning more about this project, please join us on February 16. Visit calgary.ca/fishcompensation for more information.
