The Alberta Water for Life strategy recognizes the importance of partnerships within watersheds and throughout the province. The Alberta Water Council, Watershed Planning and Advisory Councils and Watershed Stewardship Groups all work together in different but complimentary ways.
The Water For Life Enabling Partnerships publication describes Watershed Stewardship Groups as such; "Watershed Stewardship Groups are already raising awareness and undertaking 'on-the-ground' activities to protect and enhance local lakes and streams. These groups are promoting knowledge and best management practices for landowners who, in turn, are making changes to the way they operate. These changes are making improvements to water quality, fish habitat, riparian zones and wetlands within our local watersheds."
