Biodiversity Advisory Committee

Advisory Committee

Biodiversity Advisory Committee. Calgary's 10-year biodiversity strategic plan.

In the fall of 2015, The City of Calgary mandated the BiodiverCity Advisory Committee:

Biodiversity projects and initiatives

Targeted grazing: using goats for weed control

Calgary Parks is using goats to control weeds in a portion of West Nose Creek/Confluence Park.

Elimination of invasive species

Caragana is being removed from South Glenmore Park, Edworthy Park and River Park to increase the biodiversity of the existing native tree stand.

Naturalization initiative

Designed to introduce a greater variety of native plant communities in our parks.

Invasive plant prevention and management

The Invasive Plant Strategic Management Plan is part of The City's ongoing commitment to managing pests and invasive species.

Calgary's tools for conversion

The City has developed a number of policies and tools that guide the conservation of biodiversity. These are statutory and non-statutory policies and guidelines that collectively guide us at The City to work towards better protection of natural area biodiversity.

The BiodiverCity Advisory Committee provides Council and Administration with strategic advice on matters affecting urban biodiversity in The City of Calgary. The Committee advances the commitments and procedures identified within Our BiodiverCity, Calgary's 10-year biodiversity strategic plan and The Durban Commitment: Local Governments for Biodiversity.
