ULethbridge environmental research receives provincial boost

The University of Lethbridge will be embarking on eight environmental research projects, thanks to new funding from the Government of Alberta. These projects will study water storage in lakes, the restoration of the habitats of the endangered sage-grouse, and other key environmental issues affecting southern Alberta. “The Ministry’s significant investment in these innovative and provincially important research projects led by [ULethbridge] researchers working with Environment and Protected Areas colleagues is greatly appreciated,” said ULethbridge VP Research Dr Dena McMartin. “These projects will help to monitor and build understanding of the southern Alberta environment and potentially lead to better responses to droughts, floods, species at risk and less predictable climate changes.” AB has committed $500K over three years to the projects.
