Partners FOR the Saskatchewan River Basin
Since 1993, Partners FOR the Saskatchewan River Basin (PFSRB) has promoted stewardship and sustainability of the Saskatchewan River Basin, an international watershed stretching over the three Prairie Provinces and a portion of Montana. More than 3 million people live within the basin which includes the North Saskatchewan, Red Deer, Oldman, Bow, Highwood, South Saskatchewan, Battle, Saskatchewan, St. Mary, and Carrot Rivers.
Although their focus is upon the Basin itself, programs are most often delivered to all areas of the Prairie Provinces. To date, PFSRB has delivered over 20 major educational and informational projects. Partners FOR the Saskatchewan River Basin continues to strive for excellence, maintaining that their primary client is the River.
To promote watershed sustainability through awareness, linkages, and stewardship.
The Lake Winnipeg Foundation
The Lake Winnipeg Foundation (LWF) is an environmental non-governmental organization that advocates for change and co-ordinates action to improve the health of Lake Winnipeg – the 10th largest freshwater lake in the world.
Uniquely positioned to link science with action, LWF brings together the expertise of its Science Advisory Council, the grassroots passion of its members and the support of its partners. LWF’s flagship initiative, the Lake Winnipeg Health Plan, addresses the root causes of potentially harmful algae blooms through the implementation of eight actions to manage phosphorus loading.
LWF was founded in 2005 as a volunteer coalition of concerned citizens. Today, it remains the only membership-based freshwater organization in Manitoba, working collaboratively with non-profit, academic, industry and government sectors, First Nations, and the public to restore and protect our great lake.
LWF’s supporters are lake-lovers who want to make a difference. Together, we are translating science into solutions for the health of Lake Winnipeg – now and for future generations.
