While Alberta municipalities’ land use decisions have significant ecological implications, municipalities often struggle to obtain conservation policy support that is both useful and affordable. The goal of this project is to pilot test a crowd-sourced / crowd-funded research collaborative that will ensure that high quality, impactful, usable knowledge about conservation and land use is made available to Alberta municipalities in an efficient and effective way.
