The LSWC would like to recognize all of the organizations and partners we work with to help achieve our goals.
The Department of Environment and Parks provides fiscal and in kind to the LSWC each year. We have received operational and project support to carry our our strategic goals since 2007. The time and effort that many GOA staff have contributed to the LSWC over the years is significant. We greatly appreciate these resources and they have added much value to the LSWC’s projects.
The Lesser Slave Forest Education Society and the LSWC have been working together since 2008 to provide high quality hands on environmental education to youth in our watershed. Programs include freshwater life cycles, wetlands, water quality, snow studies, and more!
The Peace Country Beef & Forage Association is a producer group with the goal of improving the profitability and sustainability of the forage/beef industry in the Peace Region through the transfer of leading edge forage and beef technology through innovative extension activities, demonstrations, and applied research projects.
The Smoky Applied Research and Demonstration Association (SARDA) is a non-profit organization which conducts research related to agriculture. SARDA works to facilitate the transfer of new technology and sound production practices from research institutions and industry to local producers by establishing farm demonstrations and applied research trials. SARDA projects and activities are determined in large part by the interests and priorities of producers in our region.
The Boreal Center for Bird Conservation (BCBC) is the only educational and research facility in the world strategically located to study boreal birds on their breeding grounds.

Rainbarrel.ca creates rain barrels from recycled drums from the food industry. The LSWC has partnered with them
over the past few years to offer these rain barrels for sale in our watershed. Using rain barrels promotes water capture and conservation and gets people thinking about how they use water in their households.
