Green Acreages Galore

The Green Acreages program has been more active than ever, thanks to support from our municipal partners and funding from the Government of Alberta’s Watershed Resiliency and Restoration Program. Here are the top three things we've focused on and where we’re headed with this program that's dedicated to acreage owners.
Money, Money, Money
For the first time ever, the Green Acreages program is able to offer funding to acreage owners for implementing stewardship projects on their properties.
Taking Learning to a New Level
We delivered eight virtual workshops to more than 120 acreage owners in partnership with workshop hosts.
One, Two, Three, Four...
In addition to everything else the Green Acreages program delivers, we have also begun to gather data to develop an inventory of acreage development across Alberta (region by region).
