Water Management Workshop (Sat. & Sun.)    Sat Jun 2 to Sun Jun 3, 2018, Wakefield, QC

Nothing defines the nature of an area more than water does!

Did you know that by applying water management we can restore landscapes? By utilizing the correct techniques we can help to prevent and reverse erosion, reduce flooding, and hinder droughts!

Whether you are a property owner looking to combat flood, drought, and erosion, A student looking to further their knowledge in the water cycle, Or you’re simply curious to learn about how we can interact with water to benefit both us and the planet…
