The Grassroots of Conservation
Twenty years and 210,000 conserved and managed acres later, it still doesn't get old: when ACA is taking care of the land, we're taking care of the future and when that time comes it's not us choosing our limitations. It's the land.
What we take on now decides the outcome of Alberta's conservation science, practice, and policy. Thankfully, working with other like-minded people and groups stretches our capabilities.
ACA has been working with landowners, donors, and corporations since 1997 to set aside parcels of land-some being farmland, where we enhance habitats, encouraging the wild to get a little wilder. Other parcels might be mostly untouched, and we work to keep them that way. A future as good as our present day depends on fostering what we have, while finding opportunities to conserve more of those special places.
