Alberta’s land, water, biodiversity and natural resources benefit from strong partnerships of stewards. Alberta’s government:
- fosters these partnerships with municipalities, non-profits, landowners, land trusts and others
- funds and supports a wide-variety of environmental stewardship programs across the province
These funding opportunities conserve, restore and enhance Alberta’s environment, including these priorities:
- Conserve ecological biodiversity by maintaining large areas of native landscape.
- Conserve, restore and connect wildlife habitat corridors.
- Support watershed functions for healthy aquatic ecosystems, flood and drought mitigation, and water quality.
- Support ecosystem services that benefit the economy, human health and recreational opportunities.
