About Us

Understand, Educate, Apply

The proposed Alberta Centre for Reclamation and Restoration Ecology at the University of Alberta (ACRRE) will serve as a nucleus for the development of world-class research programs, education of natural resource professionals, application of scientific knowledge to best management practices and policies, and enhancement of public education. This includes research encompassing conservation and sustainable management of water, soils, vegetation, and wildlife complemented by work at the interface of social, economic and environmental policy.

Leading the way from science to practice

Working closely with industry professionals and regulators, researchers at ACRRE will provide science-based solutions to real-world problems.
