The Red Deer River Watershed Alliance invites members and the general public to its fall forum and general meeting.
Fractured Reality: The Convergence of Watershed Management and Land Use Planning, takes place on Oct. 25 at Olds College.
Highlights include a panel discussion on hydraulic fracturing in the watershed and a presentation on the June pipeline spill affecting the Red Deer River.

It will also present information about its educational outreach program to take watershed knowledge into classrooms and out to wetlands across the Red Deer River basin.
A guided tour of Olds College’s constructed wetlands is also planned.
