Two New Working Group Reports Available

October 3, 2017 | Posted by AB NAWMP

These two reports are compilations of ideas discussed over the course of the Agriculture and Wetland Stewardship Working Group and the Wetland Municipal Engagement Working Group meetings attended by independent partner organizations.

1. The first report, titled Improving Wetland Stewardship in Alberta’s Agricultural Landscapes, represents the work of the Alberta NAWMP Agriculture and Wetland Stewardship Working Group. This group was tasked with exploring the issues with implementing the wetland policy on the agricultural landscape as well as recommending solutions to these issues.

2. The second report, titled Recommendations to Improve Municipal Wetland Conservation in Alberta, represents the work of the Wetland Municipal Engagement Working Group to address the need for greater municipal engagement in wetland conservation.
