The Manitoba Eco-Network Water Caucus is a resource and activity hub for individuals and groups interested and involved in local water issues.
In Manitoba, we are surrounded by waterbodies of many sizes. We feel connected to water, and we have the ability to make choices that can help make sure that we and future generations will always have clean water available.
The Water Caucus builds awareness about local freshwater resources and issues, offer presentations and workshops, communicate local freshwater stories, depave areas to improve stormwater retention, work with our network on solution-oriented projects, and and much more.
We work closely with individuals, organizations and communities to take direct action in how we affect the water resources in our own province.
We communicate the value of freshwater, the need for water conservation, and encourage sustainable water management.
