On June 18, Lacombe County officially opened the Kuhnen Natural Area to the public. Located on the eastern side of Lacombe County, the public space features 65 acres of land running along the north side of the Red Deer River.
“The gift of this land from the Kuhnen Family exemplifies the importance community residents place on managing green space for the betterment of current and future generations,” said Reeve Paula Law. “We appreciate this priceless gift from the Kuhnens, and are proud to protect these lands, for everyone to come out and spend time in nature.”
Local long-time residents, Frank and Rosalie Kuhnen, generously donated this land to Lacombe County, who will ensure the area remains in a natural state for the public to use for passive recreational purposes.
