KEVIN STEINLEY
Executive Director
I have joined the Swift Current Creek Watershed Stewards as of May 2016.

In addition to my role with the Swift Current Creek Watershed Stewards I operate a cow calf operation with my brother and his family. We are the third generation to raise livestock on the farm north of Rush Lake.

I understand first hand the importance of maintaining water quality and stream health of the Swift Creek. Our cattle drink water from the Swift Current Creek Watershed and much of the forage fed to the livestock is from land irrigated from water from the Watershed.

I graduated from the College of Agriculture with a degree in Animal Science in 1990. Since then I have held a number of positions gaining experience working with producers, government and business, allowing me to effectively promote awareness and understating of the importance of the Swift Current Creek among all stakeholders in the Watershed.

I look forward to working with all of the stakeholders in the Watershed to maintain and improve water quality and stream health of the Swift Current Creek.

If you have any questions or concerns please contact me at 306-770-4607 or stewards@sccws.com.

BMP Technician

My involvement with the Swift Current Creek Watershed Stewards began in high school when I volunteered to help on the biomonitoring projects. My lifelong love of the creek and prairies led me to taking post-secondary schooling at SIAST Woodland Campus in Prince Albert, SK and earning a diploma in Integrated Resource Management and a B.Sc. degree in Environmental Biology from the University of Regina.

I was pleased to join the Stewards again as the summer student coordinator and even taking on the coordination of the biomonitoring projects in 2013. In 2016 I was hired as the Beneficial Management Practices Technician. I strive to educate all users of the Swift Current Creek Watershed and its importance to rural, urban, and agricultural communities.

We have a valuable resource in the creek and it provides so much in terms of a water supply, diversity with wildlife, and aesthetic values within the city of Swift Current and surrounding area.
