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.

The alliance will update work on its multi-year management planning project dealing with riparian areas, wetlands and land use components. 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.

More information on the event is available online at www.rdrwa.ca. Registration is $15 per person and can be done by emailing info@rdrwa.ca or calling 403-340-7379.

The alliance is a multi-sector non-profit organization committed to the proper management of water in the Red Deer River watershed. It’s one of 11 watershed planning and advisory councils within the provincial government’s Water for Life Strategy.
