Connecting Land & Water

Riparian areas, the areas connecting land and water, help clean our water, create drought and flood resiliency, and provide habitat for fish and wildlife.

Cows and Fish empowers people who live, work, and play in Alberta’s riparian areas to take action to care for riparian areas.

We Are “Cows and Fish”

Also known as the "Riparian Management Society"

At Cows and Fish, we strive to foster a better understanding of how improvements in grazing and other management of riparian areas can enhance landscape health and productivity, for the benefit of landowners, agricultural producers, communities and others who use and value riparian areas.
