SAVE OUR SEINE WINS PRIZE FOR HOSTING SHORELINE CLEANUP!

Earlier this fall, The Living by Water Project SK/MB sent Shoreline Celebration & Restoration Month (SCRM) reminders to all our participating groups, asking them to send in a summary of their SCRM event or activity. All groups who informed us of their event were entered in a draw for a prize from the Nature Saskatchewan Bookstore. Save Our Seine River Environment Inc in Winnipeg, MB won the prize (Manitoba Birds Lone Pine Field Guide) for informing us of their Annual Shoreline Cleanup of the Seine River on Oct. 14/00!

SHORELINE NETWORKING GOES NATIONAL

You are invited to join The Living by Water Project in developing Shorelines 2001 and Shorelines 2002. Shorelines 2001 is a Canada_wide series of community_based forums where you can gather with other groups to network and explore new and innovative ideas, such as Conservation Marketing tools and techniques, to help protect Canada's shorelines. As part of the UN International Year of the Volunteer, The Living by Water Project will be recognizing the valuable role of the volunteer in caring for Canada's shorelines and in assisting scientists with inventory and monitoring work. Shorelines 2002 is a national conference that will take place in Vancouver to address selected issues raised in the regional forums. A Shoreline Festival, to be held in conjunction with the conference, is also being planned.

FOR SOMETHING NEW _ CHECK OUT CONSERVATION MARKETING

The Living by Water Project is developing a training program in Conservation Marketing for volunteers and staff of community_based groups and interested agencies. Conservation Marketing borrows concepts from community_based social marketing, ethical business marketing, and environmental education techniques. The program features practical examples and transferable techniques to assist you in matching services and products to the needs of your audience _ while still delivering your organization's message.

INVITING YOUR GROUP... to participate in the Shoreline Ambassador Program.

Your stewardship / conservation group, cottage association, youth group or resort community is invited to become a part of a national conservation pledge campaign aimed at honouring the efforts of those who protect, conserve or restore shorelines. We encourage your group to become a licensed issuer of Shoreline Ambassador certificates to help thank your members, volunteers and participants at your events. The Shoreline Ambassador Program will inspire people to take action and will benefit you, your community and your shorelines!!

Contact the SK/MB office for more details.

Girl Guides and Brownies in Saskatchewan are very excited about the countless possibilities they have in working with The Living by Water Project. As Shoreline Ambassadors, the Guides can fulfil many of the outdoor and environment components of their programs, as well as work with us towards healthier human and wildlife habitat along the shorelines of Saskatchewan. To get involved contact the SK/MB office or your regional Girl Guide Program Adviser.
