Pre-Site Assessment and Reclamation Practices for Northern Fescue Native Grasslands                           August 14-15, 2019          Consort, Alberta

Northern Fescue native grasslands are highly fragmented. Competent pre-disturbance site assessment and follow through are critical to preparing effective and cost-efficient construction and reclamation plans. This two-day classroom and field-based course covers how to:

  • Use the Range Plant Community Guides to assess grasslands
  • Develop a Recovery Strategy for Disturbances
  • Design and source seed mixes for industrial disturbances to meet Reclamation Criteria conservation objectives.

These tools provide valuable context to interpret results of data collected for NEW AEP Conservation Assessments – Strategic Siting and Pre-disturbance Site Assessments for Industrial Activities on Native Grasslands.
