ALUS Lacombe

ALUS Lacombe was the 22nd ALUS community in Canada, and the tenth in Alberta, in January 2017.

 

 

 

The ALUS Lacombe program operates in the beautiful plains of central Alberta, just north of Red Deer. ALUS Lacombe was the 22nd ALUS community in Canada and the tenth in Alberta, in January 2017.

Recognizing the value of the agriculture industry in the economic, social, and historical fabric of local communities, yet also understanding that agricultural activities have an impact on land and water resources, ALUS Lacombe will establish innovative projects that produce ecosystem services, such as cleaner air, cleaner water and more biodiversity, to benefit the environment and everyone in the community.

Specifically, ALUS Lacombe will provide 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.

Like all ALUS programs, ALUS Lacombe is completely voluntary for local agricultural producers and landowners, and is overseen by a Partnership Advisory Committee (PAC).
