HABITAT STEWARD PROGRAM TO BE RELAUNCHED.
The Red Deer River Naturalists (RDRN) are pleased to announce that the Habitat Steward program is being relaunched. The Habitat Steward program, which was first implemented by RDRN in the late 1980s, recognizes landowners who conserve at least 2 Ha (5 acres) of wildlife habitat on their property. Under the program, Habitat Stewards receive a gate sign to recognize their efforts.
The Habitat Steward program seeks to both publicly acknowledge the efforts of private stewards to conserve habitat and to highlight the intrinsic value of habitat conservation on private lands. There are no legal obligations, access expectations or other requirements. Stewards who would rather not have a gate sign are still encouraged to join the program.
The 2021-2022 relaunch will encompass an area within 100 km of the City of Red Deer. Additional information and an application form will be posted soon.
