Green Acreages


Acreage owners in Red Deer County can improve the natural environment on their acreages. The Green Acreages Program is here to help you!

With the Green Acreages Program, Red Deer County acreage owners can apply for funding to do the environmental improvements on their property.

Eligible projects include:

  • Planting "Biodiverse" Trees and Shrubs (a.k.a. Ecobuffers)
  • Improving septic systems that are discharging to common waterbodies including groundwater
  • Creating habitat for native pollinators
  • Non-agricultural livestock management

Red Deer County acreage owners are invited to apply for 75% of cash costs for a Green Acreages Project, to a maximum of $3,000.00.
