Partner Spotlight : Cows and Fish

Cows and Fish

Cows and Fish have played an integral role in bringing ALUS along in Alberta. Thanks to support from their leaders and field staff ALUS is more rigorous and scientifically sound. They continue to play two key roles in ALUS's success. The first is their guidance on the Partnership Advisory Committees in Parkland County and the County of Vermilion River where Kerri O'Shaunnessy has helped immensely with guidance to these communities. Cows and Fish has also conducted numerous riparian health assessments on ALUS sites to help monitor and document any improvements to the health of the land resulting from the famers and ranchers implementing improvements on their farms.

Many thanks to Kerri and the whole Cows and Fish team for their efforts in improving the environment on so many fronts.
