Understanding and Living with Beavers

Posted May 6, 2014 by LSC

Developed for Alberta natural resource managers, municipalities, landowners and others, join Cows & Fish at one of these two FREE workshops on learning to understand and live with beavers.

Whether you love them or hate them, want to understand them, think you need them or want to learn how to live with them, you will find this workshop useful. An integral part of the workshop will be discussion about challenges, concerns and values. Topics to be discussed will include:

  • Beaver basics – Ecology, natural history, watershed connections
  • Beaver challenges – Issues, management, options and alternatives
  • Beaver case studies – How others are dealing and living with beavers
  • Beaver banter – Round table discussion on beaver messages, messaging, management issues, management options, information needs
  • Beaver next steps – Awareness messages, tool development, beaver role in watersheds, reintroductions and future management
  • Outdoor Field Trip – Ann and Sandy Cross Conservation Area (beaver reintroduction site, with technology use). Please be prepared for 2.5 hours outside & 15 minute walk.

Public Consultations for the NSRP to Start Soon

Posted May 1, 2014 by LSC

This month the first phase of public consultation is being organized for the North Saskatchewan Regional Plan. You are invited you to attend the upcoming daytime or evening sessions to learn more about the region as well as share your thoughts on the issues and strategies contained in the Terms of Reference for Developing the North Saskatchewan Regional Plan. See the dates and locations below, which are subject to change.

The North Saskatchewan Region is located in central Alberta and has approximately 85,780 square kilometres, or just under 13 per cent of Alberta’s total land base. The region is bordered by Saskatchewan to the east, British Columbia to the west, the Upper Athabasca and the Lower Athabasca regions to the north and the South Saskatchewan and Red Deer regions to the south.

The purpose of regional planning is to support the numerous policies and strategies that guide natural resource development, support economic growth and protect our environment. Regional plans will integrate these policies and strategies at the regional level and provide the policy direction and clarity for decision makers at the federal, provincial and local levels.

Daytime and afternoon/evening sessions are being planned for the following communities. Stay tuned for more information about how you can RSVP to one of these workshops.
