In 2013 the Government of Canada announced that it would be releasing the OneFour research station back to the province of Alberta. The research at the station includes range management, cattle genetics and wildlife research. The current plan is to develop a partnership between the province, University of Alberta Rangeland Research Institute and the new Onefour Grazing Association.
Shari Clare, adjunct professor at the U of A provides comment on the plan to restore 60 wetlands around Calgary in order to prevent future catastrophic floods.
University of Alberta researchers will be looking at rooting depth, root size, pore space and biological activity in the soil in order to confirm the benefits of CTF (where machinery wheel tracks are confined to specific lanes or tramlines).
