Season of Creation begins on September 1st, World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation, and ends on October 4, the feast of St. Francis of Assisi.

Melissa Logan is a Professional Biologist working with the City of St Albert as the Environmental Coordinator for Sturgeon River and Natural Areas.

Kelsie Norton is a Watershed Planning Coordinator with the North Saskatchewan Watershed Alliance as a Watershed Planning Coordinator. She leads the municipally supported Sturgeon River Watershed Alliance and enables the implementation of its Watershed Management Plan across partner organizations. Her expertise in freshwater aquatic ecosystems and community engagement allows her to deliver and support lake conservation and management efforts at a regional level, which improves overall lake management through the efficiencies gained by harmonizing action across multiple lakes. Her experience in shoreline monitoring, fisheries, and outreach has provided her with diverse knowledge that she pulls into various projects that work with Indigenous communities, environmental non-profits, and municipalities of varying sizes and capacities. Kelsie has successfully worked with a UNESCO Biosphere and a provincial range of environmental organizations to implement programs and strategies and ultimately support stewardship and awareness of Alberta’s natural resources.
