As part of the Agricultural Service Board Grant, Big Lakes County has partnered with three organizations to improve the delivery of sustainable agricultural and water quality programming within or municipality. These organizations offer timely information on grazing, the health and state of Lesser Slave Lake and research on agronomy that is locally specific.

  • Lesser Slave Watershed Council: The Lesser Slave Watershed Council (LSWC) is a nonprofit, charitable organization whose mission is: to be a proactive organization working towards long term economic, social and environmental sustainability of the Lesser Slave watershed and its citizens. The LSWC is guided by a board of directors elected by members within the watershed.
  • Smoky Applied Research and Demonstration Association (SARDA): facilitates the transfer of unbiased information between research institutions, industry, and agriculture producers.
  • Peace Country Beef and Forage Association: Peace Country Beef & Forage Association, formerly known as North Peace Forage Association, was founded in 1982 by livestock producers in the Fairview and Hines Creek area for the purpose of demonstrating new forage varieties and technology in the Peace Country. PCBFA has continued to grow into a dedicated applied-research and extension association, currently serving 10 Municipal Districts and Counties across Northern Alberta's Peace Region.
