Program Details
  The Alberta Fish and Game Association realizes the importance of retaining wildlife habitat on private land. It has two landowner recognition habitat programs to assist local fish and game clubs throughout the province in recognizing landowners for retaining habitat. The programs, entitled "Habitat Steward" and "Heritage Farmstead", were developed to recognize landowners who have a lifelong interest in preserving wildlife habitat and who also carry out responsible land management practices on their land.

The Habitat Chairperson or competent member of the local fish and game club is required to complete the application forms for these programs and submit them to the provincial Habitat Development Coordinator. Applications approved through the "Habitat Steward" program will receive an 18" x 24" yard sign, along with a wall plaque. The landowner's name will appear on the sign and plaque. Approved applications for the "Heritage Farmstead" program will also receive an 18" x 24" yard sign to be installed at the abandoned farmstead site. The current landowners name, as well as the pioneering families name will appear on the yard sign. There is no financial compensation offered to the landowner for being involved in these programs.
