SALTS Enters 20th Year with More Than 20,000 Acres Protected!

posted Jan 13, 2018, 2:05 PM by Action for Agriculture
It's been a long and at times winding road for SALTS since its inception in 1998 but as we enter our 20th anniversary we are hitting a new milestone. We will end 2017 with more than 20,000 acres under conservation easement having completed four more projects. This is over 30 square miles and similar in size to seven Nose Hill Parks or six Glenbow Ranch Provincial Parks. 

The private lands that SALTS has protected in partnership with almost 40 landowners are in areas of high value to all Albertans including the Cowboy Trail south of Longview, the border of Waterton Lakes National Park, and along the Crownest and Oldman Rivers, not to mention many creeks and wetlands in the Bow and Oldman Watersheds.
