Athabasca Watershed
Council Fundraiser!

Our organization is accepting donations through the ATB Cares/Benevity portal. ATB Cares will match 15% of every dollar donated to Alberta-based, non-religious charities through this site (up to $5,000 of matching funds a year). 

The AWC wants to raise $7,500 to help support the cost of creating a story map about the Athabasca River Basin, and we can't do it without your support!

Your support to the Athabasca Watershed Council will help us achieve our vision of a watershed that is ecologically healthy, socially responsible, and economically sustainable. If you would like to make a donation, visit our website using the link below.

Mackenzie River Basin

You may have been wondering above, what is a story map? It's an online interactive tool that combines text and maps and other content, to form a cohesive story. For us, it will be based on the Athabasca River, from the headwaters to the Peace-Athabasca Delta. We've linked a story map on the Mackenzie River Basin to give you an idea of what we could achieve with your support.
