  • EPCOR RiverFest – Sept. 15

    The EPCOR RiverFest is a celebration of our North Saskatchewan River and the River Valley parks system. ACTWS has partnered with the town of Devon to help with the “Ripple Affect” component: providing wildlife activities and information to explain the importance of rivers and riparian habitats to a variety of species (Sept 15, 4-8pm).

    Each day of the 3-day festival features a different variety of outdoor activities all geared up to help get you active in our river valley and on the North Saskatchewan River. The kickoff to the event happens in Devon on September 15 from 4-8pm in Voyageur Park. Highlights of the event include the West Coast Lumberjack Show, new mountain bike trails opening, The Ripple Affect project, and various exhibitors from the region. Register for the flotilla launching from the boat launch in Voyageur Park around the bend to the Devon Lion’s Campground and grab something to eat from one of the food trucks on site! The fall is a beautiful time to experience the river valley both on and off the water.

  • Alberta Lake Management Society Annual Workshop – Sept. 29-30, Lac La Biche

    Visit www.alms.ca/2017-workshop to register!

    Each year the Alberta Lake Management Society (ALMS) hosts a two-day workshop to engage stakeholders on issues related to lake monitoring and management.

    Lac la Biche acts as the perfect setting for a lake-focused workshop. Of all the counties and municipal districts in Alberta, Lac la Biche falls into the top five in terms of number of waterbodies and kilometers of shoreline. Moreover, ALMS has partnered with Lac la Biche County for the past four years on lake water quality monitoring, and, with recent initiatives such as Sensitive Habitat Inventory Mapping (SHIM) and the formation of the Stewards of Lac la Biche community group, we feel that now is the perfect time to bring our workshop to this important part of the province.
