ALUS in Red Deer County - The Numbers Are Adding Up!

By Ken Lewis, Conservation Coordinator

In September, the County worked with Alberta Agriculture to tour the Tindastoll Watershed, where Alberta Agriculture and area farmers have been working on the Phosphorus Watershed Project. We learned about the project, and visited some of the farms participating. Two of those farms are also ALUS farms.

I was asked to put together a presentation about ALUS for the Tour. I gathered up the numbers so far…and was reminded just how well the program is taking off in Red Deer County.

Here’s those numbers (to September 2017):
• 5 - the number of years Red Deer County has been doing ALUS (2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017)
• 5 to 10 - the number of years we sign ALUS Contracts for with our ALUS Producers
• 64 - the number of different farmers and ranchers involved in ALUS in Red Deer County
• 1,053 - the total number of ALUS Projects in Red Deer County
• 1,965 - the number of wetland related acres enrolled by Red Deer County ALUS Producers
• 2,730 - the total number of acres enrolled by Red Deer County ALUS Producers
• 220,000 - the number of feet of range and riparian management fencing installed by Red Deer County ALUS producers
• $1,009,460 - the number of dollars we are providing to Red Deer County ALUS Producers during their ALUS Contracts

Please contact me anytime (klewis@rdcounty.ca or cell phone 403.505.9038), if you’d like to be a part of the ALUS Program in 2018.
