A primary focus of development at Elbow Valley has been to conserve and protect the natural landscape, and in some instances, to create naturalized landscapes. The heavily treed slope adjacent to Lott Creek, the slopes above the Elbow River, and the rolling hill tops with an abundance of native grasses and wild flowers are to be conserved. The natural areas should generally be left alone. Changes may occur, but as long as the changes result from natural causes, intervention is not recommended. There is one exception to this rule: the control and eradication of noxious plants. The following noxious weeds which are included on the Provincial Noxious Weeds List, are known to have infested some areas in Elbow Valley.
