Project Description

This project recruited volunteers and trained them to help preserve and protect 30,000 acres of wildlife habitat throughout Alberta. Contained within 80 properties owned by the Alberta Fish & Game Association, the pilot phase of the project met its target of recruiting and training enough volunteer stewards for 25% of the association's habitat. With curriculum, training, and marketing materials now in place, the association is working towards recruiting and training stewards for its remaining habitat.
