“Producers Leading the Way” took a new approach to cow/calf producer engagement. An online survey was deployed to all known cow/calf producers within the four local counties: Cardston, Cypress, Forty Mile and Warner.

The Milk River Watershed Council Canada has been an important non-government organization
in the Milk River region of Alberta since its founding in 2005. With the stated goal, “To achieve
balance among a thriving community, a healthy environment and a prosperous economy through
understanding, dialogue and action,” this group has been at the forefront of local initiatives
directly targeted at the Milk River Watershed community. As part of these activities, the Council
has undertaken this project, “Producers Leading the Way: Opportunities for Improved Native
Grassland Conservation and Species at Risk Stewardship within the Milk River Watershed,” in
an effort to help understand native grassland conservation in this sensitive and ecologically
important area.
