MORNING

Over the past two and a half days, we will have celebrated our spiritual connection to our waters and gained awareness of the issues and concerns that we face within our Basin. We will have listened to each other and begun contemplating a water accord for the Keepers of the Water.

Today we will boldly surge ahead, discussing and debating our thoughts and ideas, determining priorities, formulating some ideas for the water accord, and adding action items to our watershed plan.

All events will take place at the Northern Rockies Regional Recreation Centre (floor plan · 660kb PDF) unless otherwise noted.
