Working together to develop and demonstrate BMPs
Are you looking for a place to learn, share, and see BMPs in action? The Evergreen Centre for Resource Excellence and Innovation (the Centre) was developed in 2009 as a collaborative effort between industry, community and government to develop and show case Best in Class technologies and practices. The Centre is now operated by the Evergreen Learning and Innovation Society, a not-for-profit organization, and it continues to provide a safe environment for resource partners to exchange new ideas, communicate expectations, learn from others and inspire innovative resource solutions. The Centre is 10 minutes south of Grande Prairie, Alberta and is located on 8.9 hectares of boreal forest (approximately 30% upland and 70% wetland) with additional access to 32 hectares of property (10% upland and 90% wetland) located nearby. The Centre currently has 40+ on-site innovative practice demonstrations, and receives approximately 2,000 visitors annually from industry, community and government. In 2012, the Alberta Emerald Foundation recognized the Centre with an Emerald Award in the Community category. More information about the Centre can be read here and viewed here.
