Alberta Agriculture and Forestry Workshop: Wet Areas Mapping Initiative Year Ten

Mar 17 2016

Towards the Goal of Environmental Excellence: Alberta’s Wet Areas Mapping Initiative at Year Ten

Alberta’s wet areas mapping initiative was initiated in 2005 and has made positive contributions to land and forest management. During this ten year time period, the wet areas mapping model has undergone a significant transformation to address complex challenges of mapping lands within the boreal forest. New spin-off modelling tools have also become an operational reality. A new understanding of moisture distributions on the forested landscape at high resolutions has spurred new scientific studies in the field of ecology, growth and yield and reclamation. This scientific symposium will report on a decade of innovation. Read more about Alberta Agriculture and Forestry Workshop: Wet Areas Mapping Initiative Year Ten

Alberta Agriculture and Forestry Workshop: Biodiversity and Forestry

Mar 16 2016

Alberta’s forest management system identifies the maintenance of forest biodiversity as a key outcome. This workshop will explore how the implementation of ecosystem management principles and the application of strategies such as variable retention contribute to this outcome. Highlights include:

  • Application of ecosystem management principles in BC, Quebec, and Alberta and what we can learn from these different experiences. This will include several specific case studies in Alberta connecting ecological science to forest management.
  • An examination of the results from Alberta’s very own EMEND experiment. The Ecosystem Management Emulating Natural Disturbance (EMEND) Project is a large-scale variable retention harvest experiment designed to test effects of residual forest structure on ecosystem integrity and forest regeneration at the forest stand-level.

NGO Sustainability Champions Workshop Series

Mar 22 2016 to Mar 23 2016
Jun 22 2016

Non-profit organizations create positive social, environmental and economic impacts for their communities. At the same time, they are expected to be role models whose own staff and operations “walk the talk” in terms of sustainability. This can be a challenge given limited time, support and funding

The Natural Step Canada and Edmonton Community Foundation are excited to offer the NGO Sustainability Champions Workshop Series to help NGO’s address this need with two key outcomes:

  • To build the capacity of staff to develop and deliver a sustainability action plan, based on the award-winning approached pioneered by The Natural Step.
  • To develop an action plan to improve sustainability performance.
