Wetland Restoration in Alberta – Current Status and Future Potential

Tuesday, March 5, 2013
9:30 AM -3:00 PM
Executive Royal Inn
Leduc, Alberta

In our continuing dialogue on wetlands, the Alberta NAWMP Partnership is hosting a spring 2013 Wetland Forum on the popular topic of wetland restoration. The format will blend conventional presentations, virtual tour, and interactive conversations to enable discussion and networking among all participants. Presentations will offer perspectives from producers, municipal and provincial governments, conservation organizations, developers, and academics.

We will seek to raise awareness and knowledge on:

  • Why wetland restoration is critical to conservation and water management
  • Current policy guidance in support of wetland restoration
  • Successes and challenges in implementing wetland restoration

We will also seek your ideas on how to build additional capacity for wetland restoration in Alberta.

Who is invited to this Wetland Forum?

  • Government of Alberta (AESRD, AARD) and Government of Canada (AAFC, EC) involved with land and water resource policy, planning and operations (e.g. approvals, enforcement)
  • Ducks Unlimited Canada and Nature Conservancy of Canada involved with implementation
  • Municipal Governments
  • University of Alberta
  • Other interested agencies or individuals
