The Red Deer River Watershed Alliance (RDRWA) was created in 2005 as a non-profit society. We serve as the designated Watershed Planning and Advisory Council for the Red Deer River watershed, under the Government of Alberta’s Water for Life Strategy.
We act as a collaborative forum for stakeholders from across sectors to work together in support of healthy waters, landscapes, and communities. We all have a role to play in watershed management, and the RDRWA helps community members and key sectors find meaningful opportunities to make a difference.
We bring people and sectors together to share information and find practical ways forward through science and dialogue.
As a science-based organization, we work collaboratively to advance understanding of key watershed issues through research, analysis, and engagement, and to guide practical actions to improve watershed health outcomes.
We raise awareness about watershed concepts, issues, and opportunities for shared stewardship and management.
