***********
Big thank you to the volunteers at our October 2017 Doggy Doo Cleanup!

Barely 2 hours in we had removed 152 lbs (69 kg) of refuse from the Scenic Drive Dog Run. 

Anything left on the dog run is susceptible to being washed into the Oldman River down slope of the area. 

Please pick up after your dog; your dog = your duty to clean up!
 
It would be a shame for the dogs to lose this lovely run, just because their people were remiss in their Doggy Doo Duty!
 

Thanks to the Oldman Watershed Council for organizing the
Southern Alberta Water Charter Challenge #SAWC17
and to Helen Schuler Nature Centre for partnering with SAGE on this project.

SAGE is Thirty


SAGE has been operating in Lethbridge for thirty years.

Happy Birthday to SAGE!

In those thirty years, SAGE members have been active in a number of issues promoting clean air, clean and abundant sources of water, and the stewardship of wild lands. 
Over those same thirty years, we have seen the emergence of environmental issues becoming the focus of policy and media attention.  This speaks to the alarming impacts humankind is having on our environment, but it also speaks to the importance of organized environmental expertise in the community.

SAGE continues to share this important role in southern Alberta with other dedicated groups.

Sacred Spirit of Water

A documentary film written, directed and produced by Morningstar Mercredi.

 

The film traces the Idle No More movement against omnibus Bills C-45 and C-38, particularly the assault on water.

 

Connected with this movement is the impact of water contamination from oil & gas exploitation on First Nations' lands and the emerging environmental concerns about hydraulic fracturing.

 

The 57 minute film can be viewed on YouTube:
