The Beaver River Watershed Alliance is hosting a forum next Tuesday with local groups and residents to discuss the health of the local water system and what can be done to protect it better.
“On March 28th we’re having our Water Stewardship Forum,” says Program Manager Colin Hanusz. “This is an opportunity to gather our different water stewardship groups that are active in the region to discuss some things that they’re working on, some things that may be able to help the other groups that are looking to get things started, just so there’s a collaborative approach and people can see what others are doing to possibly help with what they might want to do.”
The forum is open to the public from 10 AM to 4 PM at the Alliance’s headquarters at 5107W 50 Street, Bonnyville. Register in advance at Beaverriverwatershed.ca.
The morning session will see presentations by the Muriel Lake Basin Management Society about their Beaver Deceivers Project, the Moose Lake Watershed Society about their new Lakewatch sampling and education initiatives, the Long Lake Cottage Owner’s association about the groups recent efforts and the current Long Lake Area Structure Plan and Katlyn Macdonald from the MD of Bonnyville about the Crane Lake Riparian Restoration and Preservation Program.
The afternoon session will be breakout sessions to discuss regional concerns and priorities for the Beaver River watershed and its sub-basins, as well as how we can all work better together to address these concerns
