Earth Day in Calgary

April 21, 2008

Rain barrels: At Calgary Regional Partnership Project Steering Committee on February 20, 2004 in the town of Cochrane, “Maureen Lynch, formerly with the Canadian Community Monitoring Network (CCMN), outlined the Tri Community Watershed initiative and noted that the idea behind project was to link monitoring between communities. The Initiative includes the Towns of Black Diamond, Turner Valley and Okotoks. These three communities have passed a resolution to work together on watershed initiatives. Maureen Lynch outlined the river clean up that took place in Okotoks and noted that the Town now takes on this project as a local initiative. She advised that the River Watch is connected to the Grade 11 curriculum and that the next steps include having focus groups of residents to evaluate what has been done and where to go next. This could include: Demo sites – water conservation, Adding information to websites, Composting and recycling pesticides, Strong art component – tying watershed initiates into arts, Committee members discussed information and Frank Wesseling advised that barrels are available from Coca Cola, which are inexpensive and can be used as rain barrels. Chair McAlpine thanked Maureen Lynch for her attendance at the meeting and the information provided on the Initiative.

I called (403) 291-3111; 1-800-218-2653 and they knew nothing about the sale of these barrels in Calgary. They do sell them in Prince Edward Island however. I also called 1-888-626-5399 Production Office in Calgary and left a message. 2008-04-23.
