An Adopt-A-Watershed project for headwaters health (Goal 3)
The Dutch Creek Pilot Project is a demonstration initiative to plan, implement and evaluate progress on selected priority actions of the Headwaters Action Plan 2013-14 (HAP). The project will involve integration of actions, engagement of stakeholders, government, and the public to take steps towards achieving the HAP's targets.
There is a strong team behind all this planning! The Headwaters Action Team (HAT) uses an iterative process of adaptive management – working with multiple sectors and the public to develop an implementation template that can be applied to other sub-watersheds. The long term goal is to create broader public and stakeholder understanding and a tested path of scientific assessment, sector and public engagement and action to achieve watershed health across the Oldman Headwaters region.
