Spring 2015 Wetland Forum – Tuesday, March 24, 2015

This March, 56 wetland professionals participated in a forum to hear about and discuss Alberta’s Wetland Policy, due to launch in June 2015. The session provided a sneak-peek at the tools and processes under development to enable implementation of the Wetland Policy.

The format included overview presentations, demonstrations, and interactive conversations with the intention to:

  • Showcase the tools and processes that will support implementation of Alberta’s Wetland Policy.
  • Enable working knowledge of tools and processes.
  • Support the launch of the Wetland Policy’s implementation in prairie and parkland Alberta.
