Wetland Replacement Program

 

The Wetland Replacement Program (WRP) is a partnership between Beaver County and Alberta Environment and Parks to replace wetlands within the County.  Wetlands are a critical part of Alberta’s landscape and play an important ecological role within Beaver County.  Funded by the Province and delivered through the County, the WRP compensates landowners to restore and replace wetlands on their property.

 

Further details regarding the Wetland Replacement Program will be made available in the coming months. For general inquiries contact the Agricultural Services Department at 780-663-3730.
