 Alberta's Opposition United Conservative leader says if elected premier he would increase funding for conservation projects and have trail users pay annual permit fees.

Jason Kenney released a 13-point conservation plan while in Canmore, Alta.

He says a United Conservative government would increase funding for the Alberta Land Trust Grant Program for conservation projects by 50 per cent.

And he says a $30 yearly trail permit fee for people using off-highway vehicles and campers in the backcountry would go to restoring current trails and creating new ones.

The fee would also help fund more enforcement officers.

Kenney says an additional $1 million would go to an existing program that works with ranchers to keep livestock from damaging creeks and streams.
