WWMC - Shoreline Stabilization Workshop
Saturday, May 11th

With current low water levels, this may be an excellent time to consider protecting the shoreline from erosion when lake levels do return to normal or above.

In conjunction with last year's Bulrush restoration project, the WWMC will be hosting a free workshop this spring, demonstrating the use of Bioengineering as an alternative to hard armoring to protect shorelines. Bioengineering is a technique using natural materials to stabilize soils. It offers an economical and sustainable method of stabilizing slopes while promoting the successful reclamation of disturbed sites.

Mark your calendars, the workshop will be held on Saturday, May 11th, and will include a brief introduction to the fundamentals of bioengineering, followed by hands-on training on willow harvesting and installation methods at a site at Seba Beach. Attendance will be limited so please register early.

Wabamun Watershed - A Plan For All Seasons

Let's Go Outdoors says:
It was an absolute pleasure to work with the fantastic volunteers at the Wabamun Lake Watershed Council. In this video, I continue my understanding of the Wabamun Lake Watershed plan and how many partners representing various levels of government and volunteers have come together to work towards a common goal. As you will see, the work required to maintain a healthy watershed is a year-round process.

A Watershed For All

Take a look at the work being done by the volunteers of the Wabamun Lake Steering committee. These folks have been working on behalf of all of us who enjoy spending time at this wonderful Lake just west of Edmonton. Recently a Watershed Plan was released by the committee that worked closely with other stakeholders within the watershed. This is just a brief overview of some of the issues Wabamun Lake faces.

The Science Behind the Ribbon of Life
Why Vegetated Shoreline Buffers Matter

What is the Ribbon of Life and why is it essential to the health and sustainable use of waterfront properties?

The ‘Ribbon of Life’ is the natural shield protecting our freshwater lakes, rivers, and streams. It is what mitigates erosion, protecting the beauty and property values of waterfront properties. It is a haven for wildlife. It is a key natural feature increasing resilience to climate change for people and wildlife.

Watersheds Canada’s survey of nearly 200 Ontario freshwater stakeholders found that the science of inland water ecosystems was the least understood area of shoreline stewardship.  

Please view Watersheds Canada’s Chris Dennison on November 28, 2022, as he discusses the scientific literature supporting the restoration and maintenance of native vegetation on shorelands and the importance of informed policies that protect both properties and the environment.
