WHAT IS ALUS? ALUS can provide funding (up to 85% of costs) to farmers and ranchers who are enhancing the natural environment on their land. In addition, ALUS pays farmers and ranchers up to $75 per acre per year, on acres that are producing increased environmental services.
WHAT ARE ECOSYSTEM SERVICES? We all depend on ecosystem services for things like water, air, food and shelter. Cleaner air, cleaner water, carbon capture and more biodiversity (including wildlife habitat and pollinator meadows) are just a few of the ecosystem services being produced by ALUS participants on their farms and ranches. Ecosystem services are valuable for the ecosystem, the community and the planet.
