New Website Announcement

The media team at the Muskrat Watershed Council has been working tirelessly over the last 10 months creating a brand new MWC website that is set to launch early 2020. Some new features being incorporated are an updated Water Quality Data page, news blog, live chat, and video gallery.  The work that is being done will not impact the current website viewing experience to site visitors. Notifications will be sent out to our subscribers and followers once the new website is officially live, our domain name will remain the same, only the look will change.  

30,000Native Trees and Shrubs Planted to Date

On November 5, 2019 the last of the 15,000 native trees and shrubs was rooted securely in the soil. This marks the end of the 2nd year of Watersheds Canada's Natural Edge Program in the Muskrat Watershed. So far, we have been able to plant 30,000 native trees and shrubs along agricultural shorelines within our watershed. A huge thank you goes out to all the individuals, schools, and businesses that came out this year to lend a helping hand. We hope to see you out again next year as we plant the final 15,000 and reach our goal of 45,000!
