In British Columbia the lead applicant for The Living by Water Project is the Federation of British Columbia Naturalists.  Founded in 1969, its goal is "to know nature and to keep it worth knowing".   The Federation is comprised of 58 federated and affiliated member clubs throughout the province, and has over 5,300 members.   The Federation operates the Land for Nature Program, an initiative to protect wildlife habitats near urban centres, and publishes The BC Naturalist four times a year, with a circulation of 6,000.   With member groups located in communities throughout the province, the Federation is ideally suited to coordinate a province wide program which depends on local workshops for its implementation.  Lead contact is Anne Murray, President.

 Lead partner in Alberta is the Federation of Alberta Naturalists, with Glen Semenchuk, Executive Director, acting as regional project leader.  Composed of natural history clubs from across the province, the Federation's aims include increasing the knowledge among Albertans of natural history and understanding of ecological processes, promoting the establishment of natural areas and nature reserves, conserving and protecting species and other features of interest.

 Lead partner for the prairie edition (Saskatchewan/Manitoba) is Nature Saskatchewan. Regional project leader is Margaret Skeel, Program Coordinator for Nature Saskatchewan. Nature Saskatchewan is the umbrella organization for eleven natural history societies throughout Saskatchewan.  It strives to promote appreciation and understanding of our natural environment through conservation, education and research.  For over fifty years Nature Saskatchewan has been conserving, documenting and protecting the province's biological diversity.

 Lead partners for the Ontario edition are Conservation Ontario and the LandOwner Resource Centre in Manotick, a "one stop shop" offering technical assistance to landowners in eastern Ontario.  Its customer orientation means that the LandOwner Resource Centre makes a unique contribution to the project, with its knowledge of what makes for user-friendly materials.  The LRC also plays a regional coordinating role, and has excellent production centre capabilities.  These features all provide excellent balance to the team of project partners.  Regional project leader is Cliff Craig.  Regional project leader is Cliff Craig.  With conserevation authorities located in many communities throughout the province, Conservation Ontario is ideally suited to assist in distribution of a province wide program which depends on local workshops for its implementation.   The LandOwner Resource Centre is also assuming interim responsibility for the Québec and Atlantic versions of the project until all partners are finalized in these regions.
