Marketing Opportunities in Conservation Incentives Seminar

Real estate agents are invited to a one-day course Oct 12 to learn how land that's part of a conservation program can be an advantage in their business.

Developed by Ducks Unlimited Canada (DUC) and supported by the Alberta Real Estate Foundation (AREF), the one-day course shows the benefits of restoration and conservation programs that go beyond the environment. Revenue potential exists, and the key is being able to scout those opportunities.Ducks Unlimited logo

You'll learn how DUC identifies and secures properties with high restoration and conservation value potential. As a realtor, you can play an important part in this process as you are well positioned to help identify land that may qualify for DUC programs. This could also lead to gains for your business down the road from the potential sale and resale of the land.Alberta Real Estate Foundation logo

The course has two 2 parts: classroom in the morning and field in the afternoon.

As an Alberta realtor, the course is full funded by the AREF.
