Extension Programs

Alberta NAWMP Partners place a high priority on achieving results through extension activities. Partners direct their extension efforts to agricultural and water resource management communities, encouraging them to adopt wildlife and wetland-friendly land-use and water management practices.

Sharing Information

Partner-directed extension programs focus on disseminating information about restoring and retaining wetland and upland habitats. These programs include forage conversion, winter cereals and species at risk. Ducks Unlimited Canada (DUC) provide forage extension programs or winter cereals extension programs. Environment and Climate Change Canada and Alberta Environment and Parks (AEP), through the Alberta Conservation Association, both implement species at risk-based extension activities.

Extension programs are delivered throughout Alberta’s prairie/parkland. Similar to direct programs, partners continually seek to identify and align collaborative opportunities for extension programs such as integrated watershed management, biodiversity planning, wildlife and biodiversity enhancement beneficial management practices (BMPs) and environmental goods and services.

The Alberta NAWMP Partnership is an excellent example of the cooperation we need. Working with partners is the key to moving conservation efforts along.
