Grassland Restoration Forum

Be Part of Our Initiative!

Sponsor the Grassland Restoration Forum

We rely on sponsorship for cost recovery and continuation of the Grassland Restoration Forum. We are seeking financial support through corporate and community sponsorship.

Our Goals –To provide a forum for information sharing, tool development, research and education to promote and support conservation and effective restoration of native grassland ecosystems in Alberta. The conservation and restoration of intact native grasslands are critical to maintaining habitat, biodiversity and ecosystem function in a fragmented and rapidly changing multi-use landscape.

Events – We host three to four outreach and extension events each year, including:

Grassland Assessment Training – which attracts 50-60 participants including 20 students;
Annual Fall Information Session – which attracts 120-140 grassland stakeholders to network and exchange current information on native grassland reclamation practice, stewardship and management.

Our goal is to operate on a ‘cost recovery’ basis while keeping participant fees low enough to allow everyone interested in the opportunity to join us.

Our new initiative, an industry which travels to different regions of the grasslands, Grassland Conservation and Restoration on a Multiple Use Landscape, highlights issues and reclamation approaches tailored to regional industries and reclamation issues.

Mailing List – We reach over 600 people on our mailing list, with interest in GRF from industry, government, environmental consultants and NGOs, agricultural producers, the public, and educational institutions.

Information Portal – a single source information portal to knowledge, guidelines, research and publication sales relevant to native grassland assessment and restoration and the Recovery Strategies for Industrial Disturbance in Native Grasslands publications.

Donations are sincerely appreciated and acknowledged at our events and in printed materials such as advertising and agendas. We are thankful for donations of any amount to continue the work of GRF going well into the foreseeable future.

Donate now or contact us to offer sponsorship for a GRF initiative or general support. We would be happy to discuss the best fit and provide additional information to you.
