Industrial activity in foothills fescue grasslands - guidelines for minimizing surface disturbance

Description

Extensive tracts of foothills fescue grassland (the provincial grass of Alberta) within the landscape of southwestern Alberta have been lost due to agricultural crop production, industrial development, urban and rural infrastructure. As a result, a protective notation (PNT) has been placed on specified public lands known to include foothills fescue grassland. The purpose of the PNT is not to restrict development but to alert industry to the environmental and economic risk. This document serves as a supplement to the information letter designating the PNT.
