Prairie Watershed Climate Program – Northwest

The Saskatchewan Association of Watersheds (SAW) is very pleased to be partnering with the Manitoba Association of Watersheds (MAW) to deliver the Prairie Watersheds Climate Program (PWCP), made possible through the Agriculture & Agri-Food Canada On Farm Climate Action Fund.  The Manitoba Association of Watersheds (MAW) has issued a press release this morning that announces the launch of our program, and the Saskatchewan Association of Watersheds (SAW) will be delivering this program throughout the province of Saskatchewan.  You can find the full release at https://manitobawatersheds.org/news/prairie-watersheds-climate-program-launched.

The Prairie Watersheds Climate Program (PWCP) works with producers to increase the implementation of select Beneficial Management Practices (BMPs) on farms in Manitoba and Saskatchewan. The BMPs eligible under the PWCP focus on three categories:

  1. Rotational Grazing
  2. Nitrogen Management
  3. Cover Cropping

I have attached the fact sheets for each of the three BMP categories that highlight the eligible on farm projects.  Please feel free to share this information with your Council, ratepayers or anyone that may have an interest in accessing this program funding.  You can also learn more at https://saskwatersheds.ca/ under the Prairie Watersheds Climate Program tab.

If you or your Council would like more information on the PWCP, please do not hesitate to contact your local SAW District Manager, Joel Houston, at 639-318-4908 or nwdistrict@saskwatersheds.ca.  Your SAW District Manager is also available to attend and present at Council meetings, rate payer meetings, or other events and we can also provide information for ratepayer newsletters.

Thank you!
