Stock growers legacy fund commemorates Alberta fire victim

The Western Stock Growers Association has established the James Hargrave Legacy Fund to promote intergenerational knowledge transfer, to help improve grasslands and grassland management, and to work on improving the marketplace for ecosystem services.

Hargrave of Walsh, Alta., was killed last autumn while fighting a wildfire in southeastern Alberta. He was active with the stock growers association as well the Alberta Grazing Lease Association.

The fund will award one recipient each year whose work in the beef and grazing industry exemplifies the philosophy Hargrave lived and worked by. The recipient will also be entitled to a mentorship with James Hargrave Legacy Fund board members.

To donate to the fund, send cheques made out to James Hargrave Legacy Fund to:
