Fighting For
A Better Future

As a volunteer-led, non-profit group, PTLA is fighting for a better future at the Talisman site, one that will benefit all and leave an environmentally responsible legacy.

We believe in revitalizing the former Talisman Resort buildings, but that any large development would have massive repercussions for the character of the Beaver Valley, the environment, the water and sewage infrastructure, and the overall quality of life for area residents.

Our 100% volunteer-led organization is supported by over 700 people and many aligned organizations who share a love of the Beaver Valley and want to see its beauty preserved. 


Our volunteer board members are:

  • Kate Lazier – Emergency physician and past municipal policy advisor who loves to hike, ski, and cycle in the magnificent Beaver Valley

  • Jeanette Parry - Enthusiastic amateur naturalist and full-time resident for the last 17 years

  • Jane Pyper - A community services leader who enjoys the trails, views, and activities of the very special Beaver Valley

  • Stephanie Warner – A marketer and fundraiser, Stephanie has been enjoying time in the Valley for more than 50 years


Join in on keeping the Beaver Valley green and natural.
