2017: Our Year In Review

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!

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.

How old is the Oldman? That is to say, how far back in human memory do we have stories about our region? SAPA and the Lethbridge Public Library are hosting the OWC on November 23rd at an EVENING EVENT sneak peek behind-the-scenes of our Film Project. We will be showcasing the research on our historical maps and timeline which underscore present-day watershed issues and the videos we are making about them.  All are welcome, admission is free. We hope you will bring a friend and join us!
