SOURCE TO TAP DIALOGUE
Water Matters the Oldman Watershed Council and SASCI* wish to thank everyone who participated in the first round of Source to Tap community conversations in November and December, 2012. Your contributions to the dialogue about the importance of the Oldman headwaters and the issues affecting headwaters health and integrity are appreciated, and the key themes have been captured in a brief report.
Our second round of community conversations will be held in the coming weeks. Building on the results of the 2012 meetings, the focus of this important final phase is to gain local input on ways to protect the health of the Oldman watershed, with the goal of generating solutions and building support for necessary stewardship actions in the headwaters. The dialogue will address the following questions:
· What specific stewardship practices or actions are currently happening in the headwaters?
· What else is required? What are the opportunities?
· How can watershed stewardship activities be further fostered and supported to increase their effectiveness over the long term?
We encourage you to attend any of the eight sessions, with dates and times listed below. And please, bring along a friend, neighbour or colleague to join in! Participants in this second round need not have attended the first round. All are welcome to share their voices.
