Acreages in Red Deer County vary greatly in size, but face many of the same risks. Whether it is land, water, or air contamination, recognizing these risks will help all landowners.
Based on the Green Acreages Guide, a provincial program that assists landowners in identifying and addressing the potential environmental hazards on their property, the Green Acreages program was also created to help landowners access funding to assist in improving their land stewardship.
The program features workshops and one-on-one work, as well as a 60/40 cost share up to $3,000, if acreage owners take actions to reduce environmental risks on their properties.
