Informational webinars on conservation easements, transferable development credits, conservation offsets, and conservation directives.
The Alberta Land Stewardship Act
(ALSA) includes within it conservation and stewardship tools that could be of use to municipalities, but a lack of clarity exists for how these tools would work.
To respond to this issue, the Miistakis Institute organized a series of webinars on the four conservation and stewardship tools that are included in the Alberta Land Stewardship Act
. Experts in each of the topics were asked to present a one-hour webinar, each followed by a moderated Q&A session.
The webinars took place in January and February 2017 and were well-received, with approximately 50 people attending each one. The four webinars were recorded and can be viewed on the Community Conserve website here
