For the Lakeside Leader
The Lesser Slave Watershed Council is hosting a free webinar in partnership with its friends at the Land Stewardship Centre. The webinar is called “Being Good Stewards of the Land.” It will talk about what it takes to manage the impact humans have on the landscape and how to help our natural environment to be more resilient to conditions such as drought and flood.
Attendees to the webinar can expect to learn about the Lesser Slave Watershed Council and the Land Stewardship Centre. They’ll hear a brief overview of the kinds of work they do and some of the best practices for acreage owners and town dwellers to protect water quality and the environment.
There will be information about the value of riparian health and different strategies for drought and flood mitigation and how wetland areas can help filter water.
Also, attendees will learn how human activities affect the landscape and how to reduce our impact.
Everything we do on the land affects not only us, but the plants and wildlife that also call our watershed home. It is vitally important that we protect what we have. Watershed management is a shared responsibility. Learning what we can today can help inform future decisions and reduce negative impacts for future generations.
The free webinar is on January 27th at 7 p.m. The event is for all ages and backgrounds. Register at www.lswc.ca to get the event link.
