Survey: Protecting Sources of Drinking Water in Alberta

Posted July 20, 2018 by LSC

The Alberta Water Council has created a project team to provide guidance for protecting public, private, and individual drinking water sources.

This project team is currently asking organizations and/or individuals involved in or supporting initiatives to develop, implement and evaluate source water protection approaches (i.e., plans, programs, policy, legislation, tools) that focus on protecting drinking water sources in public and private systems to provide input on source water protection in Alberta.

The results of this survey will inform the development of a guidance document on protecting drinking water sources. By participating in this survey, you will help the team identify:

  • existing SWP approaches in Alberta
  • drinking water risks and management processes
  • successes, barriers, and lessons learned
  • best management practices

Complete the survey here by September 14, 2018.


Imrie House Yard Gets Facelift

Posted July 3, 2018 by LSC

Through June and July, individuals from the Edmonton Native Plant Society (ENPS) are putting their time and expertise to work at Imrie House to breathe new life into the property’s landscape.

With a focus on preserving and promoting natural habitats and plant communities, and through their work at projects like the one taking place at Imrie House, ENPS seeks to enrich the natural flora of various parks and natural areas.

ENPS members raise native plants at the City of Edmonton’s Oldman Creek Nursery and maintain a demonstration native bed at the John Janzen Nature Centre, and the Muttart Conservatory. Volunteers also care for certain parts of City of Edmonton parks as Partners in Parks.

In the photo you see ENPS volunteers in front of the native vegetation plot they are establishing at Imrie House.

As the tenant and caretaker of Imrie House, Land Stewardship Centre is extremely grateful to have ENPS and their volunteers working with us to enhance the natural beauty of this special property. We’ll post more photos as the project continues.
