This six-hour course focuses on the important role that municipalities play in biodiversity conservation and highlights the ways that Alberta’s municipalities can foster resilient and biologically diverse landscapes.
We will examine the important contribution that municipalities can make to biodiversity conservation in Alberta where amendments to the Municipal Government Act empower, and indeed require, Alberta’s municipalities to enhance their environmental protection efforts.
Workshop attendees will learn the ways that current municipal conservation efforts can be augmented to harness new statutory powers, capitalize on local knowledge and initiative and enhance citizen education and engagement to improve biodiversity-related conservation outcomes.
