ALTERNATIVE LAND USE SERVICES (ALUS) ALUS Logo

We all depend on ecosystem services, for things like water, air, food, shelter. 

In Red Deer County, land is privately owned. The decisions private landowners make impact the ecosystem that society depends on. 

With ALUS, farmers and ranchers can get paid to produce more ecosystem services on their land. They can be paid up to $40 acre per year.
