January 2019 - Ongoing
Audience(s): Cow-Calf Project Type(s): Promote
SHARP is a voluntary collaborative stewardship project that can aid in improving the quality and quantity of wildlife habitat available upon the landscape. The project provides producers with baseline assessments of their property looking at range health, wildlife biodiversity, soil organic matter, and riparian health. Information is discussed with the producers and ideas are generated as a team on ways to maintain and further enhance natural resource components on their property. These detailed assessments (Habitat Conservation Strategies) are completed on participating ranches within the North Saskatchewan Watershed and portions of the Athabasca, Peace, and Red Deer Watersheds.
Goal #3: Enhance ecosystem services and biodiversity on lands managed by beef producers
As 2019 is the inaugural year of the SHARP Project we hope to continue to expand within the North Saskatchewan Watershed over the next few years with additional partners and collaborators being sought. Information and summaries of the project will be available on the Alberta Conservation Association Website.
