Video - Aerial Riparian Health Assessment. Presentation by Mary Ellen Shain

Mary Ellen Shain, watershed planner and project manager for the North Saskatchewan Watershed Alliance, discusses how they determined the condition of the riparian area for the Wabamun Lake.

A comparison was made between the health of reserve lands and private lands and possible restoration actions were provided and explained. They found a correlation between highly impaired riparian areas and development and suggested an educational campaign as a way to inform and improve the actions of the residents.

This presentation was a part of the Alberta Lake Management Society’s 22nd Annual Workshop in September of 2015 – which was co-hosted by Parkland County.
