Since Alberta took over responsibility for land management in 1930, there have been some significant shifts in the administrative approach the government has taken to managing these lands. The Land Use Framework and growing popularity of land trusts
are again shifting the conversation about land use and management in Alberta. Dr. Hanson will give us a timely look at the history of public lands in Alberta, providing some context for todayʼs conversations.
