Land management includes many activities, which vary throughout the province, depending on regional habitat needs. Regional land managers are our local representatives, communicating with neighbours and the general public, planning for conservation at a landscape level with conservation partners, and conducting on-the-ground land management activities. These activities include removing invasive plants, prescribed burning, boundary maintenance, thinning of ingrown forest areas, livestock management, and a variety of other initiatives.
All management tasks are undertaken with the best available science in mind, through consultation with regional biologists, experts, and land managers, to ensure that projects are effective, efficient, and practical.
Conservation Youth Crew Program
Many of our land management tasks are completed with the assistance of Conservation Youth Crews, working in particular regions of the province from May through August. Crew participants gain valuable experience and training in the field of land management, while acting as ambassadors for conservation with the community and their peers.
