Healthy land, water, and quality of life for future generations.


Use scientific knowledge to engage people and communities to identify and reduce nutrient loading from all sources on the Muskrat Watershed.

About the Muskrat Watershed Council

The Muskrat Watershed Council is a volunteer, community-based, not-for-profit organization whose main goal is to improve water quality for our local communities by using scientific and local-based knowledge.  We seek to engage and empower people and communities in identifying and reducing nutrient loading from all sources within the Muskrat Watershed.

Our elected Executives and Board of Directors is comprised of community volunteers that represent the involved parties of the Muskrat Watershed.  These involved parties include farmers, cottagers, environmentalists, anglers, hunters, outdoor enthusiasts, business owners, and municipality representatives.

Together they strive to:

  • Find solutions to improve water quality.
  • Educate the public on the importance of our water quality.
  • Protect the watershed.
  • Seek or raise funding from any resources available to put towards implementing projects to improve water quality within the Muskrat Watershed.


Our meetings take place on the 3rd Thursday of every month.
