Land Management Program
A healthy habitat is essential for any species to thrive. Land Management works to restore damaged habitats and protect healthy ones. From simply planting trees to installing solar-powered off-site watering technologies, we do what we can to make sure Alberta’s wildlife have a healthy place to call home.
The habitat we work to conserve, known as Conservation Sites (check out the Alberta Discover Guide), spans hundreds of thousands of acres across Alberta. Each site has its own unique characteristics with an array of opportunities to hunt, fish, forage or view wildlife. Conserving habitat in perpetuity while providing sustainable recreational opportunities, and most importantly working with landowners and member groups to get there, is what ACA’s Land Management program is all about.
Recently, we took on more land and made new connections with landowners:
- We secured 13 new Conservation Sites (acquisition/land donation), totaling 2,992 acres.
- We secured $2,700,000+ in lands (approximate value).
- ACA currently manages 46 Landowner Habitat Program Agreements, which protects 7,982 acres (3,230 hectares) of wildlife and fish habitat.
- 34 Conservation Sites underwent habitat enhancements.
- We planted 85,360 trees and shrubs on our Conservation Sites.
