About the Riparian
The Riparian Web Portal was designed to support Albertans build healthier riparian areas by providing:
access to condition assessments
summary statistics for waterbodies
resources for conservation and restoration
Although riparian data does not exist for all areas in Alberta, many agencies are now making efforts to fill in the gaps. We want to bring that data together here. This web-portal is collaborative project between government and charitable organizations in Alberta.
Purpose of the website:
Browse data from the new satellite inventories through an interactive map
Share examples of on-the-ground restoration projects by landowners and conservation groups
Browse resources and educational material that can enable landowners to adopt new restoration or conservation projects
