PAMZ Blue Skies Awards

A luncheon is being held on Wednesday, June 6th from noon until 1:30pm in the Santano Room of the Sheraton Red Deer Hotel in order to honour the three award recipients who have taken exemplary action in their local communities to improve the air quality in Central Alberta.

The Parkland Airshed Management Zone (PAMZ) will be handing out its Blue Skies Awards for 2018 on Wednesday, June 6th in Red Deer.
 
The Counties of Mountain View, Red Deer, and Lacombe are among the recipients.
 
Kevin Warren, Executive Director of PAMZ says the three counties are all involved in the Alternative Land Use Services Program (ALUS).
 
 
 
 
Warren says since the counties started the program, 100 farmers and ranchers have enhanced natural ecosystems. Almost 5000 acres of land have been improved.
 
As for air quality, he adds, the planting of trees and hedges has had the biggest impact.
 
 

 

Warren notes that - in general - our local air quality is pretty good.

 
 
 
 
Also receiving a Blue Skies Award for 2018 are NOVA Chemicals and Developments 2 Inc.Timberlands Market Project.
