RDRWA Spring Forum -Ice, Ice Maybe?


The Red Deer River Watershed Alliance invites you to join us for our upcoming Spring Forum ‘Ice, Ice, Maybe?’, on Friday, March 22nd, 2019, which is also World Water Day!

This February has been one of the coldest on record in Alberta in recent years, with more days hovering in the -30°C range in 2019 than in the last 40 years!  While the idea of warmer winters sounds appealing to many people (hurray for less shovelling!), milder temperatures in winter could also potentially impact many of the winter activities we love that rely on cold and snowy conditions, including skiing, snowmobiling, ice fishing, and outdoor ice hockey.

Check out our great “line-up” for Ice, Ice Maybe!
