Conservation Easements in Alberta

Conservation easements have been top of mind here the last few months, for a number of reasons.

  • Our Conservation Easement Guide for Municipalities (created as part of the Community Conserve project - www.communityconserve.ca) is just being reviewed by some of our municipal partners, and we plan to have it released next month.
  • We met with the Land Use Secretariat to get an update on their exciting work to create a conservation easement database.
  • We are now fully engaged with Flagstaff County helping them develop their municipal conservation easement program.
  • We are moving forward with an initiative to see the ecological contribution of conservation easements recognized in Canada's strategy to conserve 17% of the land base by 2020.
