Cows and Fish and the Southern Alberta Land Trust Society (SALTS) partnered with ranchers to look at two streams in the foothills of Alberta in the Bow River watershed. The goal of this project was to assess trends in riparian health along two streams where ranching is the dominant land use and where ranchers are actively engaged in riparian management. This factsheet summarizes the project goals and results. Learn how ranching and watershed health can go hand in hand.
Agricultural landscapes can help store or sequester carbon through beneficial management practices. This 4 page factsheet provides information on how soil carbon can benefit landowners and their land, management practices that can prevent soil loss and restore carbon stores and grazing practices to increase carbon storage opportunities.
A fact sheet on the strategy to create successful partnerships with producers and their communities to effectively address riparian land issues. This community-driven approach may be useful for your group or agency to consider.
