The Fish Creek Watershed Association (FCWA) is a watershed stewardship group that is comprised of local residents and landowners.


Fish, Priddis and Whiskey creeks and their watershed shall have excellent quality and quantity of water to ensure human, agricultural and business needs, with healthy riparian areas and fish habitat.


This citizen-led association is committed to protecting the Fish Creek watershed through citizen action for the prevention of adverse impacts, education, monitoring and  advocacy to sustain water quality and quantity in perpetuity. 

Watershed stewardship groups were named as part of Alberta’s Water for Life Strategy (2008) partnership that includes the provincial Alberta Water Council (AWC) and regional Watershed Planning and Advisory Councils (WPAC).

The FCWA’s mission is guided by the watershed management continuum. The continuum begins with building partnerships and characterizing watershed conditions through the compilation and assessment of research, reports and other knowledge. This information, including additional details about the management continuum, is available in our resources area.
