All trails closed in Alberta for OHV due to Fire Ban and Covid 19

Apr14

The Government issued a temporary fire ban and a ban on off-highway vehicle use within Fire Protection Areas. Both take effect on April 15th. They are wanting to limit human caused wildfires during the pandemic and believe both will peak about the same time.

PLEASE NOTE: OHV = sleds (confirmed by ABP&E)
