We are the voice of our rivers

Land Use Education

Land use and development practices are critical to watershed health. Like all rivers, the water quantity and quality in the Bow and Elbow Rivers are impacted by how the land is used within their watersheds. With the support of the Watershed Resiliency and Restoration Program, Calgary River Valleys provides educational information to the public, and land use decision-makers, about practices that may limit negative impacts on our rivers, creeks, and wetlands. 

Brown Trout Counts & Education

Brown Trout spawn in the fall, and each year, CRV conducts a count of spawning nests, or redds, and also provides an opportunity to observe and learn about Brown Trout spawning activity. These annual projects are supported by funding from City of Calgary Water Services.

Riparian Restoration

Over the last several years, Calgary River Valleys has been restoring sections of degraded riverbanks within Calgary, with funding from the Government of Alberta’s Watershed Resiliency and Restoration Program These projects are intended to improve the health and functionality of the riparian (transition) area between the aquatic environment and the uplands area.

Thank you to all our volunteers! We still don't know if the brown trout who spawn in the Elbow actually live there. It could be an interesting project for the future.Terri Trembath RiverWatch Alberta City of Calgary – Your Local Government Trout Unlimited Canada - Bow River Chapter ... See MoreSee Less
