Preserving our watershed, one drop at a time.

The Bends, by Bill Trout

Welcome to the Vermilion River Watershed Alliance

We are the Vermilion River Watershed Alliance, a local nonprofit group formed to revive the watershed, which is part of the North Saskatchewan River watershed in Alberta.

Through our efforts, we can improve water quality, manage flooding, reduce erosion, retain soil and moisture content, and protect local wildlife.


We acknowledge that the Vermilion River Watershed, a connection of land and water that we envision to be healthy and sustainable for generations, rests on Treaty 6 Territory. We acknowledge and respect the histories, languages, and cultures of First Nations, Metis, Inuit, and all First Peoples of Canada, whose footsteps have marked these lands for centuries and whose presence continues to enrich our vibrant communities.
