CFGA Nature Fund Project – Habitat and Biodiversity Tool – 2020-21
The Canadian Forage and Grassland Association (CFGA) is taking the lead on a national project with financial support from the Canada Nature Fund. The CFGA is working with national and provincial stakeholder committees, governments, Environmental Farm Plan (EFP) programs and agricultural associations, to develop province-specific, on-line habitat and biodiversity management tools. Nova Scotia is one of three provinces to participate in the first phase of the project and the NSFA and NS EFP program are supporting the project activities. This CFGA project builds on a recent three-year species-at-risk initiative in Alberta. CFGA projects are now underway in Saskatchewan, Manitoba and Nova Scotia to customize the tool for each province and developing online opportunities to support the EFP program in each province.
