9 km of Riparian Areas Restored!
On-the-ground riparian restoration work in the SEAWA watershed was implemented between April 2018 to October 2019. So far, a total of 9 km has been restored. Restoration consisted of installation of 2 off-stream watering systems, a total of 6 km fencing, and 2,500 native shrubs and trees planted. Work was achieved in collaboration with 8 partners at 10 different sites. A total of 702 km riparian areas were assessed for their condition as healthy, healthy with problem, or unhealthy http://seawa.ca/state-of-the-watershed/project-reports/project-report-1/
Riparian restoration project was funded by the Recreational Fisheries Conservation Partnerships Program, Fisheries & Oceans Canada (completed on March 2019), and Watershed Resiliency & Restoration Program, Government of Alberta (will end on March 2020).
