The County of Vermilion River (CVR) launched the first ALUS program in Alberta in 2010, at the Cattlemen’s Corral in Lloydminster.

Since then, the program has supported a number of local producers in establishing and maintaining stewardship projects that benefit residents across CVR.

The ALUS Vermilion River program works with farmers and ranchers to establish and maintain projects such as riparian buffers, fencing exclusion, alternative watering systems, native prairie establishment, pollinator habitat and tree plantations.

These ALUS projects provide cleaner air, cleaner water and more habitat for wildlife and pollinators, while helping to improve the productivity of marginal and ecologically sensitive land.
