The ALUS Lacombe program operates in the beautiful plains of central Alberta, north of Red Deer. ALUS Lacombe was established in January 2017 and was the 22nd ALUS community in Canada and the tenth in Alberta.
Recognizing the value of the agriculture industry in the economic, social, and historical fabric of local communities, while also understanding that agricultural activities have an impact on land and water resources, ALUS Lacombe establishes innovative projects that produce ecosystem services such as cleaner air, cleaner water and more biodiversity to benefit the environment and the community at large.
Specifically, ALUS Lacombe provides financial and technical support to Lacombe County’s agricultural producers and landowners in return for their active management of the ALUS projects established on their lands.
For more information, please contact the local ALUS Coordinator.
