Living by Water Project Wins an Emerald Award

Nature Alberta has received an Emerald Award for its excellent Living by Water Program. Congratulations!!

The SLWSS has worked closely with Nature Alberta over several years to deliver the program in the Sylvan Lake watershed. We heartily endorse the Homesite Consultation Program. Since its inauguration at Sylvan Lake in 2010, over 80 lakeshore (and backlot) properties have participated. All property owners give it the “thumbs up”.

Click Here to view the brochure that the SLWSS has created, printed and distributed to Summer Villages and members of the public with an interest in and commitment to lake protection and stewardship.

There’s much more to learn. These Living by Water links lead to videos and publications that explain the scope of the program and why it is important to Sylvan Lake:
