Our Oldman Watershed: What does it mean to be Downstream?

Wednesday, November 23, 2016 - 7:00pm - 9:00pm

This interactive presentation with the Oldman Watershed Council will discuss the Council’s new film, that will portray Southern Alberta’s diversity and entrepreneurship via watershed use, and communicate where water comes from, where it goes, and what happens in between. Following the growth of the region from the mid-1700s through to 2060, this presentation draws on the film’s historical photos, interactive maps, and spectacular footage of the people, places, and landscapes related to the Oldman Watershed.
