STRATHMORE, Alta. — The Canadian Badlands Foundation has announced that the Canadian Badlands tourism region of southeastern Alberta has been selected as the location for a new luxury eco lodge.

“This luxury eco lodge project represents a $12-million capital investment in the Canadian Badlands,” said Cindy Amos, executive director, Canadian Badlands Foundation. “It will also create new full- and part-time jobs and serve as a model for future sustainable tourism development in the region.”

The new project will be developed near the former settlement of Steveville and adjacent to Dinosaur Provincial Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

In addition to the main lodge, the project will also include 24 eco-cabins and an environmentally-designed RV site with solar-power hookups and luxury amenities.

Construction is expected to begin in 2014.
