Connecting Land and Water: Stories from the Eastern Slopes features inspiring stories from the landowners, user groups, and partner organizations that have undertaken riparian stewardship projects supported by Cows and Fish in Alberta’s Eastern Slopes. This short documentary series features three distinct projects from Beaverlodge River, Silvester Creek, and Timber Ridge Ranch. Connecting Land and Water encourages audiences to connect their values with their actions on the land, and to encourage everyone to think about how their choices might be affecting water. Together, our actions make a difference.
We are all connected to a watershed, no matter where we are. Community engagement and restoration projects on the Beaverlodge River give us a glimpse into the many ways we can take action to promote the natural regeneration of Riparian areas. We can all do our part to protect the watershed and working together we can make a difference.
The Silvester Creek Restoration project invites us to take a moment and reflect on the ways our actions impact the land. We are all part of an intricate living network with a responsibility to reconnect with the natural world around us. What mark do you want to leave behind?
Land stewards Glen and Kelly Hall share their “aha” moments as managers of Timber Ridge Ranch. Together, we dive into the important role agriculture plays in the stewardship of healthy Riparian areas and what steps they took to protect the water that flows through their land.
