Red Deer River Watershed Alliance’s Fall Forum

December 1, 2015

Wild Lands Advocate update from December 2015 by Joanna Skrajny, Conservation Specialist

This November, AWA was asked to speak at the Red Deer River Watershed Alliance’s (RDRWA) Fall Forum. This has been a big year for the RDRWA. With the completion of a Background Technical Report on Terrestrial and Aquatic Biodiversity, development of a first draft of the Integrated Watershed Management Plan (IWMP) and the initiation of Project Blue Thumb, this Watershed Council has been keeping very busy. Project Blue Thumb is an especially promising initiative – it is a social innovation lab that brings together a diverse group of stakeholders to build relationships and prototype solutions to a range of quality issues. In October, AWA helped provide feedback on the first draft of the IWMP.

We have spectacular wilderness in Alberta, much of it under some form of protection. Every square millimetre of it has had to be fought for - will always have to be fought for, forever and ever. The struggle to retain and repair wilderness is conducted not just by a few individuals, but by large numbers of committed people, from all walks of life, all working in various ways toward the same end. We need to be grateful to all of them.
