Scenic Views Project Scenic Views is a partnership between the Society of Grasslands Naturalists, the City of Medicine Hat, Alberta Ecotrust Foundation, and Tourism Medicine Hat. The Scenic Views map and locations are available at: grasslands-naturalists.org.

Ways you can be a sustainable explorer: • Leave no trash by properly disposing of items in the garbage or recycling bins. Consider bringing a trash bag with you to help clean up along the way. Bags for pet waste are also important when keeping natural areas clean and smelling fresh. This also prevents attracting wild animals like coyotes. • Keep nature healthy by staying on designated trails to minimize disturbances and soil erosion, which causes the establishment and spread of invasive weeds and lost biodiversity.
