Home on the rangeland

AltaLink has donated $655,000 to the University of Alberta’s Rangeland Research Institute (RRI) to support the creation of the AltaLink Master’s Scholarship in Rangeland Disturbance Ecology, which will advance research that will protect Alberta’s rangelands.

“Alberta’s rangelands are vital to our communities and our economy, and this research will give us the evidence we need to make important decisions about how to sustain them,” said Stan Blade, the dean of the Faculty of Agricultural, Life and Environmental Sciences.

“Funding from this gift supports research; it helps rangeland users better manage their activities,” said Edward Bork, director of the RRI. “We work with ranchers across Alberta so that all Canadians benefit from our rangelands.”
