May 1, 2014
Wild Lands Advocate article, April 2014, by Connie Simmons. The Oldman Watershed Council (OWC) produced a Headwaters Action Plan as part of the Oldman Integrated Watershed Management Plan. OWC engaged multiple stakeholders and held several workshops to created a comprehensive science-based plan that incorporates concerns and ideas from industry, government, ENGOS, locals, and First Nations. The Headwaters Action Plan used a state of the watershed to move forward in addressing culmulative impacts on the Oldman headwaters.
“Starting with three important indicators of headwaters health, the PAN (Partnership Advisory Network) participants agreed on targets (desired outcomes), recommendations to decision-makers, and stewardship action needed to begin to address issues and concerns related to each indicator.”
