Grassland Restoration Forum

Recovery Strategies for Industrial Development in Native Grassland for the Northern Fescue Natural Subregion of Alberta.

This manual has been developed for planners, land managers, land owners, reclamation practitioners and regulatory authorities to identify suitable strategies to minimize further impacts to Northern Fescue ecosystems including site preparation, timing of restoration activities, equipment, seed mixes and monitoring. It provides learning from recent academic research as well as long-term monitoring field studies and identifies strategies designed to retain and restore Northern Fescue native plant communities over time.

Event Cancellation

How to Use the Range Plant Community Guides and Recovery Strategies

Unfortunately with a number of late cancellations for the Range Plant Community Guides & Recovery Strategies Workshop scheduled for September 13th, 2023 we’ve had to make the tough decision to cancel the workshop for this fall due to insufficient registrations for a cost recovery event.  We will be offering the same workshop in conjunction with the CLRA Conference in March 2024.  The GRF Mailing list will receive notice/announcements about the event as details become available.

We are still proceeding as planned with the Grassland Assessment Classroom & Hands on Field Training on September 14th at the Cassils Hall/Antelope Creek Ranch.

Apologies for any inconvenience and appreciate your understanding.
