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

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 trees and shrubs in riparian areas - funding applies to trees and shrubs found on the AWES Native Species Database
  • Improving septic systems that are discharging to common waterbodies including groundwater
  • Non-agricultural livestock management (for example: off stream watering systems, riparian management fencing)

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.
