Finding Water – Healthy Land, Healthy Stream:

We think of water as something that comes from a river, and it does. But it also comes to the river — and how it gets there determines the health of our streams, our fisheries, and our future water security.

The Livingstone Landowners Group, comprised of ranchers, acreage owners and others who steward the lands along the Oldman River between the Livingstone Range and the Porcupine Hills, became increasingly concerned about the lack of water literacy among many users of our public lands during recent land-use debates in our Eastern Slopes. With videographer Yvan Lebel and a grant from the Alberta Land Stewardship Center, the LLG has now produced a visually stunning half-hour video about the sources of our trout waters. Narrated by conservationist and writer Kevin Van Tighem, and featuring interviews with noted Alberta fisheries biologist Lorne Fitch and water hydrologist Dr. Cherie Westbrook, the video was filmed entirely in the headwaters of the Oldman River.

Trout Unlimited Canada’s public launch of the LLG video Finding Water will be followed by a panel discussion with the filmmakers. Anybody inspired by our Eastern Slopes landscapes, committed to the conservation of our native trout species or worried about Alberta’s future water security will find the video and discussion both important and inspiring.
