ALSA's Conservation Tools for Municipalities Webinar Series


The conservation and stewardship tools under the Alberta Land Stewardship Act (ALSA) have huge applicability for municipalities, but few municipal personnel are aware of these tools. Even for those who are aware, they are not always clear on the practical aspects of how these tools could help a municipality with their conservation goals.

The ALSA Tools for Municipalities webinars brought four experts together, each speaking on one of ALSA’s conservation and stewardship tools, with the aim of starting to bridge this gap. Each webinar in the series ran live for an hour, on the dates below. You can now download a PDF of the slide deck or listen to the recording for each -- click the "Highlights" tab, above.
