Fire Impacts and Stewardship in the Watershed
Wednesday, February 13th, 2013

The OWC Rural Team is excited to announce and invite you to the 7th Annual Holding the Reins Landowners Summit themed, Fire Impacts and Stewardship in the Watershed, to be held at the Fort Macleod & District Community Hall on February 13th, 2013.

The annual Holding the Reins Landowners Summit, sponsored in part by Alberta Beef Producers, provides basin residents an opportunity to hear about rural issues and initiatives in the Oldman watershed. Presentations are given on a wide range of rural topics and landowner stewardship groups share their expertise, experiences and stories of their efforts to protect their local watershed.

This year, the Rural Team is honored to have Glen and Kelly Hall, stavely-area ranchers and Alberta Beef Producers' 2008 Environmental Stewardship Award recipients, as the Keynote Speakers. Glen and Kelly have contributed much of their time and effort to being the best stewards of the land that they can for the benefit of the watershed and we couldn't be more happy to have them join us for the summit.

Presentations will include the Milk River and Granum fire impacts and opportunities as well as the Lost Creek wildfire impacts in the Oldman headwaters and beyond.

The summit promises to be  inspiring and engaging with Digital Stories, presented by Norine Ambrose of Cows and Fish, and stewardship and landowner group updates.
