ALUS Elgin
Where Agriculture and Nature Meet

ALUS planted its roots in Elgin County in 2012, beginning with a pilot project in Bayham Township. In January of 2016, ALUS Bayham expanded to include the Townships of Malahide, Central Elgin, Southwold, Dutton-Dunwich and West Elgin.

ALUS Elgin partners with each Conservation Authority and other organizations in the region to develop projects and ideas that are best suited to the landowners’ needs and the priorities of Elgin County.

Local environmental issues, including gully and bank erosion, are considered priorities for the ALUS Elgin program, which aims to reduce sedimentation and phosphorus loading in our rivers and lakes.

As much of Elgin County is now battling the invasive Phragmites australis, controlling this species is now a priority on all wetland creation sites.
