Communications and Outreach for the ALUS Alberta Municipal Alliance (AAMA)

The AAMA is made up of ten ALUS communities, led by ALUS in partnership with municipalities. These programs are changing private land and conservation dynamics in several ways: they incentivize conservation activities on agricultural land by paying for ecosystem services; they build ownership over conservation and community support (each community forms a Partnership Advisory Committee made up of farmers, municipal officials, realtors, watershed based conservation groups, etc.); and they achieve measurable, verified conservation.

Alternative Land Use Services (ALUS)

At ALUS, we know it takes a community and a network of farmers and ranchers to create rural resilience and create, restore and enhance new acres of nature on agricultural lands to respond to local environmental challenges. This is why ALUS is community-developed and farmer-delivered.
