Grants to Alberta individuals and organizations for environmental stewardship initiatives. Funding is intended for projects to benefit and enhance the environment, local wildlife, and the outdoors. Priority will be given to proposals addressing fisheries development, non-native and native species, habitat improvement, stewardship projects, and projects related to the retention, recruitment, and education of hunters, anglers, or trappers.
The ACA Conservation, Community, and Education Grant's aim is to aid Alberta Conservation Association (ACA) in the delivery of its mission. Grants made to partners are intended to enhance and supplement ACA activities. ACA Conservation, Community, and Education Grants fund conservation activities by individuals (with appropriate insurance coverage), organizations, and communities that contribute to healthy fish and wildlife populations, to a healthy environment for fish and wildlife in Alberta, and to the understanding, appreciation, and use of that environment. This grant program will also fund projects which increase the level of attendance and awareness of outdoor opportunities, while developing knowledge and respect for conservation.
Grants are available for:
