Launched in November 2018 as a partnership between ALUS and Rocky View County, ALUS Rocky View is the 12th ALUS community in Alberta.
Located in southern Alberta, Rocky View County surrounds the City of Calgary on three sides – to the west, north and east—and shares borders with the City of Airdrie, five towns, six rural municipalities and two First Nation Reserves. There are growth and development pressures in the County, but agriculture will continue to be a major economic contributor in this region of approximately one million acres, with more than 1,500 farms including cattle and crops—primarily canola, wheat and barley.
ALUS works closely with landowners to develop and support projects that are best suited to local needs and priorities. The ALUS Rocky View program aims to help address the main environmental issues affecting their area through ALUS projects that produce ecosystem services for the community.
Through their ALUS projects, ALUS Rocky View participants will help to produce cleaner water, cleaner air and more biodiversity, including pollinator habitat, for the benefit of everyone in surrounding communities.
The ALUS Program Coordinator works with farmers and ranchers to help establish these projects, while participants receive annual, per-acre payments for the management and maintenance of these projects on their land.
