Edmonton Urban Lake Survey

Life in the city can make us forget about our impact on the environment. With parking lots, sidewalks, manicured lawns, roads and stormwater collection systems forming an artificial landscape we may not recognize we're part of the natural world. The reality is our actions in the city have a direct impact on the environment, particularly stormwater and our urban lakes.

Urban Lake Living - Healthy Communities, Healthy Lakes is an exciting new initiative of the Federation of Alberta Naturalists. Read more about Edmonton Urban Lake Survey

Bow Riverkeeper Citizen's Toolkit & Webinars Online

Experts presented each webinar and shared their knowledge and insight with participants. These presentations are now available online. Read more about Bow Riverkeeper Citizen's Toolkit & Webinars Online
