The Alberta Prairie Conservation Forum Presents:

April 14, 2021 at 12:00PM (MST) – Testing Management-Intensive Cattle Grazing as a Restoration Tool in Semi-Arid Rangelands – with Kristi Gordon

Management-intensive grazing (MiG) has recently become more recognized as a land management tool. Our research tests both MiG and traditional grazing practices for their ability to restore native, semi-arid rangeland that has been invaded by the plant spotted knapweed (Centaurea stoebe).

Community pastures are a precious ecological, societal and economic resource. Now largely care for by local and provincial community groups, there is a new opportunity for us to help conserve these grassland, forest and wetland habitats across Western Canada. The continued existence and good management of these lands contributes to biodiversity, water quality, soil conservation and carbon sequestration.

Nature Conservancy Canada

Wildlife corridors between natural habitats are essential for the survival of many species. But across Canada, these corridors are increasingly threatened by roads and habitat loss. This directly impacts wildlife and makes it harder for species and ecosystems to adapt to climate change. Conserving connectivity in Canada is critical to maintain nature here at home, but it also impacts wildlife in the U.S and beyond. This webinar will present a new national study on connectivity, discuss the importance of wildlife corridors, and share case studies where the Nature Conservancy of Canada and partners are protecting and restoring corridors to keep Canada’s nature connected.

Connecting Corridors

Connecting Corridors – October 24, 2019

The PCF is seeking to identify key places where connectivity needs to be sustained or improved to maximize benefits for native habitat types and species. An invite only workshop on October 29th, 2019 convened a couple of dozen landscape ecologists and landscape conservation practitioners to take the theory and along with their own applied expertise, make focused recommendations on the location and significance of major corridors in prairie and parkland Alberta at both regional and operational scales. In advance of this workshop a webinar was held on October 24, 2019 to present necessary background information to the workshop participants as well as a larger voluntary audience.
