Lethbridge is set to grow in population - so is the rest of Southern Alberta. Can we be smart about it? Guest blogger Ryan Carriere, Parks Planning Manager of the City of Lethbridge - Infrastructure Services ponders the question, and the OWC offers some insight as well. Alberta is projected to add close to 1.8 million residents over the next 25 years, reaching 6 million by 2041. Now, more than ever before, we must bring watershed vocabulary into our thoughts and actions.
SACPA recently invited us to present at the Lethbridge Public Library and give an update on our current research. Anna Garleff, Communications Specialist, and Shannon Frank, Executive Director, welcomed a full house and were excited to present history, maps, timelines and videos to the crowd. Thank you for coming - we had representation from throughout the watershed and we were thrilled to see everyone there. Here's the narrated PowerPoint for those who couldn't make it.
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!
