Getting our Feet Wet- Riparian Restoration Project Launch

 The Battle River Watershed Alliance in Partnership with Cows and Fish are launching are Riparian Research and Restoration Project to improve fish habitat and water quality in the Battle River in your area. Why? In 2004, Mike Sullivan with the Alberta Conservation Association led a fish survey of the entire Battle River.  The stretch of river between Dried Meat Lake and Forestburg had very poor results; few fish and fish species were found, and water quality measurements exceeded guidelines.  This is why we are launching the Battle River Riparian Research and Restoration Project.  A healthy riparian area or stream buffer will help create a river that we and our children can fish in, swim in and drink from.

We hope to have you join us between 10am and 2pm,  for all or part of this event to: 

  • Enjoy a free BBQ lunch
  • Hear the success stories from our Guest Speaker Dixon Hammond, Rancher and Coordinator of the Beaver Creek Watershed group
  • Learn more about the Riparian Project
  • Share your memories, ideas and knowledge of the area
  • Be part of the enhancement of the Battle River and Ferry Point Crossing

 To RSVP or if you have questions please contact Nathalie Stanley at the BRWA at <nathalie(at)> or by phone at 780-672-0276.
