In 2006, the City of Lethbridge partnered with the OWC to develop 10 interpretive signs along the path around the constructed wetland in Lethbridge's first sustainable community of SunRidge in southwest Lethbridge. The signs point out features of the wetland and explain the many important functions the wetland performs for the community.
The OWC took part in the Word on the Street Festival, a festival that promotes literacy and the joy in reading where we showcase our programs and encouraged people to get involved. We featured topics such as Prairie Urban Garden, Caring for our Watersheds, Yellow Fish Road, and the importance of protecting our stormwater.
The OWC is a member of the Lethbridge Environment Week Committee. Events are held all week to engage people in environmental activities. The Green List recognizes individuals, organizations and businesses taking green action.
