2017: Our Year In Review

We're all wrapping up major projects and winding down for Christmas - it's a good time to think about all the incredible things that have happened in the Oldman watershed, and at OWC, in 2017. We've put together some highlights for you, with lots of links to 2017's best photos, videos, maps and key events. It's our year in review - and our way of saying thank you to everyone who calls the Oldman watershed home. Merry Christmas, everyone!
