Have you ever thought about creating pollinator habitat ecobuffer, installing fencing manage a wetland, reducing run-off, or otherwise “greening” your property? Through the Green Acreages program Acreage Owners have potential access to funding to help make ideas like this, a reality.

Green Acreages provides technical assistance to acreage landowners to complete their Green Acreages Guide and their Green Acreages Action Plan, and cost-shares on approved projects.

Projects may be eligible for 60% of costs, up to $2,000. This year, anyone applying to the Green Acreages program will also be entered in a draw at the end of the year for additional funding for their project. Two project entries will be drawn. First prize will raise the maximum funding to $4,000, and second prize will raise the maximum funding to $3,000 for your project. Winners of this draw will be announced on December 1, 2017, after all approved project receipts from this year’s projects have been submitted.

Contact Aimee Delaney, Green Acreages Coordinator at 403.350.2150, adelaney@rdcounty.ca or Cynthia Pohl, Green Acreages Liaison at 403.749.2655, livlands@telus.net to see if your ideas are eligible for the Green Acreages Program.

With help from the Sylvan Lake Management Committee, we have funding specifically for acreages in the Sylvan Lake Watershed portion of Red Deer County. Apply today while funding is still available.
