The South Saskatchewan Regional Plan (SSRP) identifies a number of strategies to manage and conserve Alberta’s native grasslands.
The SSRP, which came into effect in 2014, provides strategic direction for the South Saskatchewan region to achieve long-term economic, environmental, and social goals. As part of the management intent for the South Saskatchewan Region, the Government of Alberta committed to numerous strategies to support biodiversity and ecosystem function, including long-term planning around management and conservation of the grasslands.
To support this work, the Grasslands Tools Project
has been developed and the summary report, available here
, includes a literature review and jurisdictional scan across Alberta, North America and internationally of existing tools and resources that are currently being used for grasslands conservation. These tools and resources may help maintain, improve, enhance, restore, conserve and secure intact native grasslands landscapes and habitats in Alberta. The summary report is intended as a reference for government, agencies, land trusts, municipalities and landowners to use for their own information and exploration of tools that could work for them.
