Can we restore your wetland?

posted Mar 16, 2015, 6:01 AM by Action for Agriculture
Alberta Land Institute launched the Alberta’s Living Laboratory Wetlands Project, a multi-year, interdisciplinary research program that will see researchers work in partnership with private land owners to restore wetlands on their property. The objective? To use some of the most advanced scientific techniques available to better understand the ‘functional value’ of restored wetlands, while also using a reverse auction to build a more complete understanding of the true cost of restoration –– including the cost of compensating land owners.

Alberta Innovates – Bio Solutions, has also produced a news release about the project, which can be found here.
