explore our watershed. The only Conservation District north
53rd parallel! Here is what you will see!
Kelsey Conservation District was formed in January
of 1999. We are also the
most diverse as we are surrounded by numerous ecosystems.
Our borders are the RM of Kelsey. To the West of the
Town of The Pas there is pristine agricultural land without
a rock in sight, better known as Carrot Valley. To North
there are the communities of Cranberry Portage and Wanless.
Both communities are situated around beautiful lakes
that are perfect for fishing, swimming and camping. You
can also choose to explore vast boreal forest. Wanless
is also home to small parcels of farmland and Cranberry
Portage is nestled at the southern most tip of our great
Canadian Shield. To the East there is Rallís Island,
which is situated up against the old Saskatchewan River.
Here you will find a mixture of farming and eco-tourism.
Finally to the South, mixed forest, lakes and a abundance
of wildlife surrounds us.
and extending outside of these boundaries is our watershed.
The Saskatchewan River Basin stretches from the province
and Manitoba emptying into Hudson Bay. This watershed envelops
many lakes, rivers, potholes, swamps and marshlands. With
the help of our partners, the Rural Municipality of Kelsey
the Manitoba Conservation and Water Stewardship, Kelsey Conservation
Mission is to develop practical and sustainable programs that
will help manage our watershed. After all everything and everyone
is reliant on a healthy water supply. So please come and find
out more about our programs and what you can do to help.
