During the provincial Wildfire Season, March 1 to October 31, all burning within the Municipal District of Bighorn requires a permit. Please contact "Agriculture & Forestry" in Calgary at 403-297-8800 to make arrangements.
Outside of the provincial Wildfire Season, residents within the hamlets and residential subdivisions (Ghost Country Place, Kananaskis Settlement) require a burning permit which they may obtain at the Municipal District office at #2 Heart Mountain Drive. Burning permits are not required in the rural areas during this time.
Municipal District residents are only permitted to burn clean wood. No yard waste, construction / demolition waste, garbage or scrap, including anything treated or painted, tires, shingles, etc.
The Alberta Weed Control Act & Regulation lists regulated weed species while the Agricultural Pests Act & Regulation lists other animal, bird, insect, plant or disease as pests or nuisances. Property owners are responsible for managing the regulated weed and pest species on their property. This legislation enables inspectors and local authorities to deal with native and introduced weeds and pests.
Contact the Environmental Fieldman or Assistant Environmental Fieldman at 403-673-3611. You can make a report even if you are unsure if it is a regulated species.
