Upper Athabasca Data is Now Online!

February 8, 2018

Who is collecting the data?

The Upper Athabasca Community Based Monitoring program involves volunteers from three local stewardship groups:   The Green Foundation   of Edson, the   Central Athabasca Stewardship Society   of Fort Assiniboine and the   Tawatinaw Watershed Stewards   of Tawatinaw.

Thanks to the hard work of Upper Athabasca Community Based Monitoring Program and their volunteers, everyone now have access to these important datasets.

From the DataStream team, we would like to provide a BIG welcome to the Upper Athabasca Community Based Monitoring Program!

The Upper Athabasca Community Based Monitoring program depends on the generosity of donors. If you are interested in finding out more contact uathcbm(at)gmail.com

DataStream now has data from the southern reaches of the Basin all the way to the north! But there is still lots more data that needs to be made openly available, if you are interested in providing or helping communities bring their data online please contact us.
