NSWA Watershed Forum September 9

Posted September 5, 2010 by LSC

Your Watershed. Your Voice.

Please join the North Saskatchewan Watershed Alliance (NSWA) and other stakeholders at a Forum to introduce the DRAFT Integrated Watershed Management Plan for the North Saskatchewan River Watershed in Alberta.

September 9, 2010
1:30 pm – 4:30 p.m.
Prince of Wales Armouries, 10440–108 Avenue, Edmonton

The NSWA is the Watershed Planning and Advisory Council (WPAC) for the North Saskatchewan River watershed under Water for Life: Alberta’s Strategy for Sustainability. It is a multi-stakeholder watershed planning partnership.

The NSWA has completed a wide range of technical studies on the North Saskatchewan River watershed: water supply, water use, water quality, groundwater, economics, cumulative effects assessment and multi-stakeholder engagement. These studies, plus consultations with stakeholder groups at a previous series of Watershed Management Planning Forums are the basis for this DRAFT watershed management plan.

The purpose of the DRAFT Integrated Watershed Management Plan (IWMP) for the North Saskatchewan River watershed is to protect the long-term supply and quality of water resources for future generations. The draft plan is comprehensive, and addresses a diverse range of water, land and development issues. It incorporates stakeholder interests and addresses the current policy context for watershed plan implementation.

Using feedback from a continuing series of meetings and forums, the NSWA will revise the DRAFT plan and submit it to the Government of Alberta in spring of 2011.

Come and add your voice and views to the discussion. RSVP to water@nswa.ab.ca or phone 780.496.5577.


Attend the Crown Roundtable Conference in September

Posted September 4, 2010 by LSC

Remarkable Beyond Borders: Shaping the Future of the Crown of the Continent

First Annual Crown Roundtable Conference
September 23–24, 2010
Bayshore Inn, Waterton Lakes National Park, Alberta

The 18-million-acre Crown of the Continent is a rare and special place – an ecological crossroads where plant and animal communities from the Pacific Northwest, eastern prairies, southern Rockies and boreal forests mingle.

This Roundtable will launch its first in a series of annual conferences on the Crown of the Continent. The conference, Remarkable Beyond Borders: Shaping the Future of the Crown of the Continent is at once a celebration of the people, places, and history of the Crown of the Continent and an exploration of the region’s future.

Over the course of two days, participants will examine what it means to live and work in the Crown of the Continent. Attendees will celebrate the efforts of people and organizations to preserve the culture, heritage, communities and landscape of the region now and for future generations. Conference goers will assess the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead, and will begin building the relationships and knowledge to shape the future of the Crown of the Continent.
