We strive to keep our Membership, Stakeholders & Indigenous Partners and the public informed on the issues, health and available data of the Athabasca Watershed. Part of our function as a WPAC is to provide watershed education and increase watershed literacy throughought the watershed and beyond. By producing high quality publications and educational/marketing materials, we inform and educate our audience on the status of the Watershed and the activities of our organization.
