Seba Beach Bioengineering Workshop

Where? Meet at Hamlet of Wabamun School  (5305 50 St, Wabamun AB)
Who? The FREE workshop is organized by WWMC.

It is recommended for ages 12 and up who are interested in receiving some hands-on training in the fundamentals of bioengineering to restore and stabilize steep slopes and eroding shorelines.

About?  Bioengineering is a technique using natural materials to stabilize soils. It offers an economical and sustainable method of stabilizing slopes, while promoting successional reclamation of disturbed sites.

The day will start off with a brief introduction of the fundamentals of bioengineering, followed by hands-on training on willow harvesting and installation methods. (Willows will be harvested near the Hamlet of Wabamun and willow installation will be at a site in Seba Beach).  Participants will gain practical experience in the application of bioengineering, and an introduction for how it may be used as an effective alternative to traditional engineering practices while building resiliency into the watershed. This workshop is an extension of the WWMC 2023 bulrush restoration pilot project.

Please bring safety glasses, work gloves, sturdy footwear, and weather appropriate clothing. Participation will be limited to a maximum of 30 people. Water and snacks will be provided. It is recommended that participants bring their own lunch and drinking water.

Please be Advised

The Summer Village of Lakeview has been experiencing illegal dumping on Municipal Property. Specifically, we have been finding piled brush and yard debris in the fireguards. This is incredibly unsafe in our current climate and defeats the purpose of why the fireguards were installed in the first place.

The Kapasiwin Transfer Station, located at 3503 Township Rd. 533A, RR 35, N of Hwy. 16 takes yard debris and brush. As it costs money and resources to utilize the transfer stations, we ask that residents take it upon themselves to properly dispose of their yard waste.

Dump Cards are Required. Please contact the Village Office at 780.691.4465 if you require a dump card.

Free FireSmart Home Assessments

Parkland County is now offering free FireSmart Home Assessments to residents of Lakeview.
County residents can get a free FireSmart Home Assessment to learn how to protect their homes from wildfires. Each assessment takes about 30-45 minutes, and it's important that you're there too. 

Our FireSmart experts will:
1.     Tour the outside of your house and yard for things that increase your risk during a wildfire.
2.     Provide a customized report based on what they see with actions on how to reduce the risk of damage by wildfire.
3.     Share helpful tips to make your home less susceptible to wildfires.

If you've completed the suggested safety improvements in the report, you can ask for another assessment later if you wish.

2024 Removal of Caragana from Lakeview

As you know, in 2022, we received the Forest Assessment Report for Lakeview. Since then, Council has been on a mission to comply with all suggestions for the health and safety of Lakeview and its natural environment. One area of concern is the suggested removal of all Carragana from ALL of Lakeview. As the Caragana trees and shrubs are not native to Lakeview (or Canada, for that matter) and are, in fact, invasive, we would like to inquire with residents about removing them. With a little diligence and planning, we can keep our Village intentionally beautiful. But we need your help!

Proposal:         If enough residents are interested in cutting down and bringing all fallen/cut Caragana debris
                         to the road, Council will cover the costs of woodchipping and removing debris from the Village.

When:             Spring 2024
Respond By:  February 16, 2024

More Information:
At the August 30, 2023, Regularly Scheduled Council Meeting, Council discussed options for the removal of the Caragana trees and shrubs in Lakeview. As per recommendations made from the 2022/2023 Forest Assessment, Council has decided to collaborate with residents to seek levels of community interest in handling the problem as a team effort.

We are asking all residents in Lakeview to please contact the Village Office with their thoughts on removing the Carigana from their properties. Would you be interested in taking on this project in the Spring of 2024? Let us know!

We will be collecting responses at and 780.691.4465.

Caragana arborescens, the Siberian peashrub,[1] Siberian pea-tree,[2] or caragana, is a species of legume native to Siberia and parts of China (Heilongjiang, Xinjiang) and neighboring Mongolia and Kazakhstan.[3] It was taken to the United States by Eurasian immigrants, who used it as a food source while travelling west. In some areas of the United States it is considered an invasive species. Introduced on the Canadian prairies in the 1880's, the hardy caragana provided shelter-belts, wildlife habitat, nitrogen fixation, and wind-breaks to prevent soil erosion and snow drifting.

It is a perennial shrub or small tree growing 2–6 m (6 ft 7 in – 19 ft 8 in) tall.[3] Typically, it has a moderate to fast growth rate, being able to grow one to three feet during the first year after trimming.

The leaves vary from light green to dark green, and are alternate and compound with many small leaflets. Fragrant yellow flowers bloom in May or June. The fruits are legumes which contain many seeds, and ripen in July. As the seed pods dry they have a tendency to twist and pop open, releasing the seeds.[4]
