Love Your Headwaters Festival

Aug 10 2016 - 10:00pm to Aug 11 2016 - 2:00am

Celebrate Edmonton's Headwaters! The Bighorn Backcountry provides 86% of Edmonton's water - why isn't it protected?

The Bighorn Backcountry, near Nordegg, Alberta, provides Edmonton with 86% of its drinking water. However, this area is still designated as a series of Public Land Use Zones (PLUZs), meaning it is threatened by coal development, oil and gas activity, and forestry!
