The Milk River watershed is a unique watershed located in the most southern part of Alberta. It is unique, known not just for its dry climate, extraordinary landscapes and diverse plant and wildlife communities but also for the direction in which the Milk River flows.  The Milk River is the only watershed in Alberta that drains south to the Gulf of Mexico.  Alberta shares the Milk River watershed with the province of Saskatchewan and the State of Montana, U.S.A.

Water shortages are not uncommon in the Milk River watershed.  As the problem of water scarcity continues to grow, proper water and watershed management is critical.  The Milk River Watershed Council Canada is committed to working with government and non-government agencies, other non-profit organizations, industry and Milk River watershed residents to effectively manage watershed resources.

Anyone living and/or working in the Milk River watershed is invited to participate.  Please browse through our website and see how you can get involved in the many exciting activities of the MRWCC!

Thank you for making the MRWCC 8th Annual General Meeting (AGM) a success!
