“Southern Alberta will soon be sporting a brand new provincial park named Antelope Hill thanks to a generous donation from a retired farmer near Hanna,” reports the Canadian Press.

Gottlob Schmidt, 90, who has lived in the area for more than 80 years, donated his homestead of almost a thousand acres (380 hectares) to Alberta Parks. The rolling hills, including rare native grasslands, aspen groves, wildlife and wetlands, will be set aside for hikers and other low-impact recreation.
