Oldman Watershed Council

By: Shirley Pickering

Shirley Pickering’s leadership on progressive water management and stewardship has no peers in the private, volunteer, or public sectors. She has built community and agency capacity and then crafted strategies that address intractable watershed issues with solutions that last because they meet provincial needs and are based on community consensus and technical competency. Shirley’s accomplishments stand in marked contrast to her deliberate, modest and self-effacing manner. She gives freely of her time, skills, experience and considerable professional expertise in providing leadership to basin councils, non-government stewardship organizations, government committees and community groups.
