There are currently no management
initiatives specifically for the western spiderwort in Alberta.
Although it has only been recently discovered in Alberta, annual
fluctuations in population and potential habitat loss have increased
concern for its continued existence in the province. Despite
ongoing surveys of potential habitat, no other occurrences have been
found in Alberta. Further surveys must be undertaken.
Alberta and Saskatchewan populations are very susceptible to site disturbance
because of their small size and restricted distributions.
