Drumheller’s Flood Mitigation and Climate Adaptation System is committed to achieving both greenhouse gas reduction and conservation goals through its vegetation inventory program. Over 5,000 individual shrubs and trees have been surveyed during the past few months. The data collected has provided a wide range of vegetation statistics on local variety and density, as can be seen in the displayed visuals. Each tree mapped can also be tracked for health, age and suitable replacements, providing for a sustainable urban forest that can be maintained for the welfare of both inhabitants and wildlife in one of Canada's most unique landscapes.
