Your Land, Your Water, Your Voice

It’s your watershed. What do you want it to look like?

The Battle River Watershed Alliance (BRWA) is proud to announce the completion of its “State of the Battle River and Sounding Creek Watersheds Report 2011”. This summary report provides an overview of the current ecological, social and economic conditions in our watersheds. For a paper copy of the report, please contact us. A PDF version of the report can be downloaded from our State of the Watershed Webpage.

With the launch of this report, the BRWA is hosting community workshops across the Battle River and Sounding Creek watersheds. The same information will be provided at each workshop, so you can attend the workshop that works best for you.

The purpose of these workshops is to share information from the “State of” report and hear from watershed residents and stakeholders on the issues and opportunities facing our watersheds. These discussions will help inform our decisions as we move forward in planning how to best manage our watersheds.

Are you interested in learning more about the state of your watershed? Want to share your perspective on watershed issues? Join us for one of these community workshops.
