Watershed Resiliency and Restoration Program

Description

The program aims to improve natural watershed functions in order to build greater long-term resiliency to droughts and floods through 4 key focus areas:

  • Conservation of critical wetlands, riparian areas and floodplain features within priority watersheds, with these areas being given greater consideration for preserving by decision makers and landowners.
  • Stewardship is increased through greater understanding and awareness among the public, land-use decision makers and other key stakeholders of the importance of watershed functions, and their relationship to flood and drought mitigation.
