The Prairie Water Care (PWC) program is a hands-on program for volunteers who are interested in learning about water quality issues. The PWC program has four components:
i) water monitoring,
ii) macro-invertebrate ("bug") identification,
iii) riparian health assessment, and
iv) a specific conservation activity in each area.
The objective of the program is for volunteer groups to understand the importance of each of these aspects to the health of the water and how they are inter-related in purpose.
Each volunteer group receives technical assistance and training from PWC staff of the Saskatchewan Watershed Authority. If you are interested in learning more about the program, please contact Jody Oliver at 306-535-9760.
