Watershed Ambassador Program

It's Your Watershed

Since its launch in September 2011, the Red Deer River Watershed Alliance's (RDRWA) "Watershed Ambassador Program" continues to grow! The program is RDRWA’s response to requests from the region’s Watershed Stewardship Groups (WSGs) for further support and recognition of their efforts and promotes watershed management, publicly recognizes, and thanks watershed stewards throughout the region. This program recognizes both large and small efforts of organizations and individuals. Through this popular program, RDRWA is raising the profile of the watershed, its stewardship groups, stewards, and all those practicing related Beneficial Watershed Management Practices.

Any person in the watershed community may be nominated by any citizen to become a Watershed Ambassador. It’s not restricted solely to RDRWA or WSG volunteers working on watershed programs. We want to recognize contributions being made to watershed stewardship and ensure the general public understands their true value. The RDRWA Watershed Ambassador Program helps take watershed planning out of the boardroom and out into the watershed. “Watershed management benefits everyone - it’s everyone’s business.” As well as conferring ambassadors, the RDRWA is highlighting watershed management issues of interest through special presentations by professionals and volunteers in the watershed, usually over breakfast or lunch. Watershed Ambassador Breakfasts are an important part of this successful ongoing program.

To be nominated as an Ambassador of the Red Deer River Watershed Alliance, an individual should demonstrate a personal commitment to Watershed Management Practices and their work should  align with the RDRWA vision, mission, and goals.
