We rely on the headwaters of the Rocky Mountains for 90% of Alberta’s drinking water. Fed by rain, snow, and glacier ice, these landscapes absorb, clean, and release our water into streams and river systems — eventually reaching our homes in communities across the province.

The goal of Love Your Headwaters is to protect Alberta’s headwaters and the landscapes that provide them.

Learn about our work through our current project regions: The Castle, The Bighorn, Livingstone-Porcupine Hills and Kananaskis/Ghost, or read on to explore the importance of headwaters.
