ALUS Parkland's Carla Rhyant appears in ALUS' "Stewards of the land" video series.
The ALUS program came to Parkland County in 2012.
Adjacent to Alberta’s capital city of Edmonton and located along the North Saskatchewan River, Parkland County is a centrally located community and a strong ALUS partner.
Parkland County is committed to delivering the ALUS concept. ALUS Parkland works with farmers and ranchers to establish ALUS projects that produce ecosystem services on marginal or environmentally sensitive agricultural land, providing support and annual per-acre payments for the maintenance and management of these projects.
ALUS Parkland has a number of projects established to date, including wetland restoration, the establishment of native prairie, pollinator habitat, multi-row shelterbelts, enhanced and expanded riparian areas, alternative watering systems, nesting structures and fencing around waterbodies.
The ALUS Parkland team works with producers to identify stewardship opportunities on their farms and to help them throughout the ALUS process.
