We provide information about the watershed and create forums for sharing that information
What is a Watershed?
A watershed is an area of land where water from rain or snow melt flows into a body of water such as a wetland, lake, stream or river. We all live in a watershed.
The North Saskatchewan River watershed is divided into twelve smaller subwatersheds. Each subwatershed has unique landscapes and watershed issues.
The North Saskatchewan Watershed Alliance works with partners to develop watershed management solutions at both regional and local levels.
