ALUS Canada’s CEO, Bryan Gilvesy, presented the case for creative solutions to wetland restoration at the Rural Municipalities of Alberta’s Spring Convention, held March 20, 2019, at the Edmonton Convention Centre.

Accompanied by Parkland County’s mayor, Rod Shaigec, Gilvesy explained how ALUS helps communities invest in natural infrastructure on the landscape.

In all 25 ALUS communities across six provinces—including 13 local programs in Alberta alone—ALUS projects aim to enhance the function of wetlands and riparian areas on local farms and ranches.

And by keeping these projects in good working order each year, ALUS participants produce ecosystem services such as flood resilience, cleaner water, cleaner air and more biodiversity.

This is an important return on investment that benefits every community.
