Southern Alberta Outdoorsmen
Southern Alberta Outdoorsmen (SAO) is a multi-year partner in the ACA Fish Stocking Program at Gold Springs Park Pond, located southeast of Milk River. Their annual donations support rainbow trout stocking at this pond.
In 1989, SAO was instrumental in acquiring the grants to dredge Gold Springs Park Dam so trout could overwinter. Over time, SAO members have worked to replenish area wildlife. They partnered to release 30 wild turkeys at Writing-On-Stone Provincial Park and near Pendant d’Oreille Gas Camp in the ‘70s, and more recently goose nesting in Verdigris Coulee and raising pheasants for release.
