ALUS Vulcan
Where Agriculture and Nature Meet

ALUS works closely with landowners to develop and support projects that are best suited to local needs and priorities. The ALUS Vulcan program aims to help address the main environmental issues affecting their area through ALUS projects that produce ecosystem services for the community.

ALUS Vulcan’s first goal was to identify saline-prone lands and identify projects that can help manage those marginal lands. By implementing these new strategies, the program wants to help improve environmental sustainability, reduce agricultural costs, and increase agricultural profitability.

Through their ALUS projects, ALUS Vulcan 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 Vulcan 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.

For more information, please contact one of our program coordinator.
