  • Where we use the watershed as the geographic unit to coordinate the management of natural resourcesAdvantages of this approach are that it Considers all activities within a landscape because each activity affects watershed healthIntegrates biology, chemistry, economics, and social considerations into decision makingEmploys local input and provincial goals and regulationsRecognizes needs for water supply, water quality, flood control, soil management, fisheries, biodiversity, habitat preservationPartnerships are fundamental to a conservation districts existence as each conservation district is formed by a partnership between municipal and provincial government
  • Audience participation - Hold out cupped handIrregular shape edges higher than middle fit together like puzzle piecesHow do you think these watersheds got there names?What is a Watershed?A watershed isan ecosystem with interacting parts – parts that are both living (animals, birds, bugs, people, etc.) and non-living (rocks, water, etc.)A watershed is an area of land that naturally or artificially drains all water within the land, tributaries and rivers into a common destination such as a stream or lake.  
  • Some of you have existing relationships with your conservation district and know how to reach usIf you don’t talk to your peers or visit the Manitoba Conservation Districts Association's website to see what conservation district you are in
  • What do we doIncentive and education based programs to achieve watershed goalsFocus on my district and the youth education we have partnered withFriends of Riding Mountain National Park
  • Not every conservation district has the same arsenal of equipment
  • Supplement curriculumWill do what the teacher wants – if they want to take the students out ok, if not and we bring samples in that is ok too
  • South Central Eco InstituteBased out of Prairie Spirit School DivisionMany conservation districts are getting River Watch kits – a new toolLots of ways to get the funds to purchase a kit – grants, industry
  • Sponsor other programs
  • Annual competitionprizes
  • Give and TakeDon’t be afraid to ask us, we will try to make something work, but be respectful that we juggle a lot of tasks just like youwe are not going to discipline and will be respectful of how you discipline, but our tolerance level is probably different than yoursShout it from the roof-tops about how much you value us
