Event description

Description

SEAWA would like to invite you to our free Community Educational Forum!

This event will focus on biodiversity in riparian areas of the SEAWA watershed.

Riparian areas occur at the transition between land and water bodies (i.e. streams and lakes). A healthy riparian area provides many biological and social ecosystem services not limited to: improving water quality, floodwater conveyance and storage, bank and shoreline stabilization, recreational opportunity, and provision of habitat for unique plants, fish, birds and other animals. These services are an important part of the overall function of a watershed.

Speakers from the Government of Alberta, Calgary Zoological Society, Miistakis Institute, University of Lethbridge, and the private sector will be presenting information about the importance of diverse species of plants and animals for riparian areas, including but not limited to research on Russian olive trees, northern leopard frogs, rattlesnake hibernacula, and riparian restoration projects in southern Alberta.

Grasslands Naturalists will have a booth set up at the event, which will be a great opportunity for guests to learn about native plant species and local birding and walking trails!
