The Province's Kananaskis Country Pass has brought in more than $10-million in revenue.

The passes were introduced June 1 and since then more than 253,000 have been issued.

The money, according to the government, is being used for trail maintenance, visitor services, search and rescue, waste management and facility upkeep.

The Province has also hired another 20 conservation officers.

Money from the passes has also allowed for the reopening of two visitor information centres.

The Alberta government is introducing a new reporting line, 310-LAND.

It consolidates 15 regional and department lines into one easy-to-remember number that Albertans can call 24-7 to report parks and public land violations and public safety incidents.

Albertans can also use 310-LAND to contact the department during regular business hours for general land and resource-related inquiries and information requests.
