Alberta Chapter

Welcome to the Alberta Chapter of the Canadian Land Reclamation Association. With approximately 650 members, our chapter is a vibrant part of the reclamation movement within Alberta and includes private and corporate members alike.

Our corporate members include producers, consultants and contractors that work in a variety of industries including oil and gas, mining, forestry, transportation, renewable energy, and agriculture. We actively welcome student members from all post secondary institutions with an interest in reclamation.

Part of our ongoing initiative is to provide scholarships to deserving student members who show outstanding initiatives in the field of reclamation. In addition, we donate funds raised from our Annual Charity Golf Tournament. Our recipients for 2017 are Western Sky Land Trust (www.westernskylandtrust.ca), and the Alberta Centre for Reclamation Restoration Ecology (ACRRE, http://acrre.ualberta.ca/Home).  These two trust funds are committed to reclaiming or conserving local areas and research, education and innovation within the province
