Executive Director

I have joined the Swift Current Creek Watershed Stewards as of May 2016.

In addition to my role with the Swift Current Creek Watershed Stewards I operate a cow calf operation with my brother and his family. We are the third generation to raise livestock on the farm north of Rush Lake.

I understand first hand the importance of maintaining water quality and stream health of the Swift Creek. Our cattle drink water from the Swift Current Creek Watershed and much of the forage fed to the livestock is from land irrigated from water from the Watershed.

I graduated from the College of Agriculture with a degree in Animal Science in 1990. Since then I have held a number of positions gaining experience working with producers, government and business, allowing me to effectively promote awareness and understating of the importance of the Swift Current Creek among all stakeholders in the Watershed.

I look forward to working with all of the stakeholders in the Watershed to maintain and improve water quality and stream health of the Swift Current Creek.

Watershed Technician

My involvement with the Swift Current Creek Watershed Stewards began in high school when I volunteered to help on the biomonitoring projects. My lifelong love of the creek and prairies led me to taking post-secondary schooling at SIAST Woodland Campus in Prince Albert, SK and earning a diploma in Integrated Resource Management and a B.Sc. degree in Environmental Biology from the University of Regina.

I was pleased to join the Stewards again as the summer student coordinator and even taking on the coordination of the biomonitoring projects in 2013. In 2016 I was hired as the Beneficial Management Practices Technician. I strive to educate all users of the Swift Current Creek Watershed and its importance to rural, urban, and agricultural communities.

We have a valuable resource in the creek and it provides so much in terms of a water supply, diversity with wildlife, and aesthetic values within the city of Swift Current and surrounding area.

Summer Stewardship Coordinator

My name is Samantha Perry and I am the summer stewardship coordinator and I will be mostly running the Frog Hoppers Programs. I have always been very involved with children and that is one of the things that excites me about working with the Frog Hoppers program.

I have begun to schedule presentations with previous programs and schools.I have scheduled 17 workshops throughout the summer. June and July are very busy months for myself. I am most excited to begin to teach the children about the watershed and learn something about it myself. I have been working hard on all my presentations. I would like to make the presentations mostly hands on as much as possible as children are always interested in being a part of the program.

I am looking forward to going to the creeks and partake in pond dipping with the children and watch their excitement with what they catch and show their classmates. I am very excited to being a part of the Swift Current Creek Watershed Stewards and grateful for such an opportunity.
