La Salle Redboine Conservation District is a non- profit, grass roots organization serving to protect, manage, & develop our natural resources in a sustainable manner for the greater benefit of the present & future generations.
Our next Board Meeting will be held on Thursday June 20, 2013. The meeting will be at 1:00 pm in Elie, MB.
Landowner meetings with MHHC are almost complete. 5 landowners have reached agreements in principle with MHHC and LSRBCD for a current total of 760 acres that will be signed up under Conservation Agreements! The International Institute for Sustainable Development has begun cat-tail harvesting under a trial project. We have harvested 130 acres for a total of almost 600 bales of cat-tails.
Check out the IISD Video “Our Lake, Our Solutions: Two years of progress and partnerships” here. Pelly’s Lake is featured in this great video about biomass harvesting.
Implementation of the La Salle River IWMP continues as we work towards the recommendations laid out in the plan. Water Retention projects are underway including an on-site water retention pilot project that will hold all surface and sub-surface run-off from a 120acre field. The water can then sit and let nutrients settle out before being released into the drainage system.
