In 2013 GWAS received an Environmental Damages fund grant of $75,880 for the specific purpose of conserving and protecting fish and/or fish habitat in the Province of Alberta.

GWAS in collaboration with the Elbow River Watershed Group (ERWP) and user groups is undertaking a project called “Restoration of stream crossing sites with demonstration of sustainable crossing development”.
