Community Forums on Red Deer River Watershed

Posted August 26, 2010 by LSC

In January 2010, following the successful completion of the State of the Watershed Report, the Red Deer River Watershed Alliance (RDRWA) began a public consultation process for the development of an Integrated Watershed Management Plan.

RDRWA wants to involve the community in the planning process, so they are holding a series of Community Forums on watershed health and invite you to participate.

The first three forums will be held in:

Sundre, Alberta
Tuesday, September 21, 2010
10 am – 3 pm
Sundre Arena, #1, 101 2nd Avenue NW

Red Deer
Wednesday, September 22, 2010
10 am – 3 pm
Quality Inn (North Hill Inn), 7150, 50th (Gaetz) Avenue

Oyen
Thursday, September 23, 2010
10 am – 3 pm
Oyen Seniors Centre, 219 2nd Street West

The same information will be provided at each forum so you can pick the location that best suits you. Lunch will be provided.

Everyone is welcome, but you must register by September 14, 2010.
Email: iwmp@rdrwa.ca
Phone: 403–340-7379

The forums will focus on watershed health indicators related to water quality and water quantity. There will be resource people to give short presentations and then you will have an opportunity to ask questions, make comments and take part in discussions.

If you are unable to attend, there will be other ways you can learn about the watershed and provide input.

A second set of daytime forums on land use and biodiversity will be held at the same locations in October, so please make a note of the following dates:

Sundre – Tuesday, October 26, 2010
Red Deer – Wednesday, October 27, 2010
Oyen – Thursday, October 28, 2010

The community forums will be followed by workshops where participants will “roll up their sleeves” and use information from the forums to set priorities for health issues in their part of the watershed. More information on the workshops will be sent out closer to the date. Mark your calendars now so you will be available to participate in these important workshops:

Sundre – Tuesday, November 23, 2010
Red Deer – Wednesday, November 24, 2010
Oyen – Thursday, November 25, 2010

If you need any other information, please email us at iwmp@rdrwa.ca or phone 403–340-7379. Check out the Red Deer River Watershed Alliance website in early September for more information.
