ALUS Flagstaff

In 2016, Coordinator Kelsey Fenton and her team at Flagstaff County started working very hard to get their new ALUS Flagstaff program up and running.

 

 

 

Covering a geographic area of nearly a million acres (more than 4,000 km2), the program focuses on encourage landowners (farmers) to create conservation projects for prairie potholes, wetlands and other marginally productive farmland in this agricultural and oil-producing region southeast of Edmonton. ALUS Flagstaff hopes to help protect habitat and water quality in Iron Creek and the beautiful Battle River watershed.
