Battle River Watershed Festival
Celebrate the watershed at this annual, fun-filled festival. Games, crafts, guest speakers, free BBQ lunch, and Saskatoon pie! The festival is held every August in a different community across the watershed.
Magpie Nature Camp
Magpie Nature Camp helps kids find joy in the great outdoors, teaching activities that empower them to connect to nature and find value in stewardship. Campers will learn about wilderness safety and awareness, edible and medicinal plants, fish and wildlife, and survival skills like shelter building, fire starting, and bow and arrow making. We will deepen our connection to nature, build confidence and resilience outdoors, learn ancient skills, and of course have fun!
Give voice to the diversity of perspectives that exist across the watershed and explore people’s connections to this place through photography.
Participants take photographs that have an impact on them or shape their connection to place in some way.
Rolling Down the River Cycling Tour
This tour promotes healthy and active lifestyles in the watershed that supports us. The BRWA has hosted rides in June of 2012, 2013, 2014, and 2017. We hope to host another tour in the future with a different routes and new partners!
Saskatoon Pie Baking Competition
Nothing speaks of the joys of summer better than a homemade Saskatoon pie! Our annual pie baking competition is open to all bakers of every skill level. We invite you to roll up your sleeves, pull out the flour, and show off your creativity in the kitchen. If you aren't a baker, come out and be a judge in the People's Choice vote and experience the deliciousness of one of our finest native berries.
Spirit of the Watershed
Spirit of the Watershed is a plein-air art workshop which invites local artists to bring their art supplies outside. Participants have the opportunity for instruction and guidance from a local artist and instructor, and the space and time to be inspired by the beauty of nature.
