There are twelve days left to give the best gift this year. Wait…you say, Christmas is in five days. No, you have twelve days, until 11:59 P.M. on December 31, left to make a charitable gift and enjoy the benefits of that gift. In a season dedicated to consumerism, and giving the best gift possible, giving to charities and those who need it is often overlooked.
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!
You may not even be aware of what it takes to be a good steward of the land if you didn't grow up on a farm or ranch - but most folks these days are taking a keen interest in where their food comes from, and keeping water quality healthy. This new blogpost talks about OWC's work on the land - interesting for everybody who lives, works, recreates and invests in Southern Alberta!
Oldman Watershed Council launches GivingTuesday movement in support of Oldman watershed restoration efforts. GivingTuesday is “the opening day of the giving season”. Giving is a lifelong commitment, and a giving day is a special celebration, a reminder to all of us to think of others and our communities as well as ourselves. GivingTuesday is more than a moment, it’s a movement.
