AWA Briefing Notes re Onefour Research Farm Closure
June 14, 2013
The closure of the Onefour Research Farm is part of plans the federal government has announced. The current federal lease for the research farm operations do not expire for some time, however the federal government may choose to surrender the lease back to the province of Alberta at any time. AWA believes the announcement, the time we have before the lease expires and the pending South Saskatchewan Regional Plan provide both threats and opportunities for conservation of this vastly important native prairie grassland.
