Interested in learning about drainage and the urban watershed in North Calgary?
This soggy summer is great example of why we should be engaged on issues surrounding where water is diverted in our neighbourhoods, and the Friends of Confederation Creek are wealth of knowledge and dedication to the topic.
Via their website:
The Friends of Confederation Creek was formed in 2019 to preserve, protect, and restore Confederation Creek, and it’s watershed. The outcomes we seek are improvement of water quality in the Nose Creek watershed, of which Confederation Creek is a major part, and subsequently the Bow River basins. We aim to do this by protecting and re-establishing wetlands and to daylight and rehabilitate water courses such as Confederation Creek.
FOCC also works to hold all levels of government accountable to meaningful laws, policies and actions that ensure democratic engagement, sustainable development, and environmental protection to promote a healthy and green city and province, working collaboratively to constructively achieve these goals.
