Supporter Spotlight

Municipality of Bayham

The Municipality of Bayham has been a very strong supporter of the ALUS program right from the start of a three year pilot project being undertaken within its boundaries. Being so close to the established ALUS Norfolk program, many councilors and community members were familiar with the ALUS concept and confident that it would have the same great results in their area; so much so that they have contributed $30,000 dollars to the program each year of the pilot.

The nature of the landscape in the region is highly susceptible to erosion, primarily from water. By supporting the ALUS program and its ability to work with community, the Municipality hopes to curb the erosion problems many of the residents in the area face as well as gain all the other benefits ALUS provides to communities.
