Jan. 2018 - Ellen’s Creek Watershed Group introduces a new award

A new award, the Brookie Award, recognizes the recipient for their contributions to the health of our watershed or other watersheds in PEI.
Periodically the Ellen's Creek Watershed Group Inc (ECWG) will present an award of excellence, named The Brookie Award, to an individual, organization or business demonstrating commitment and leadership in promoting urban watershed health.  The award is named after the “brookie” in recognition of the correlation between watershed health and the health of its brook trout population.  By a unanimous vote of the ECWG Board, we are pleased to make the first such award to Ms. Ramona Doyle, the Sustainability Officer for the City of Charlottetown. Ramona has and continues to be a steadfast champion within the City of Charlottetown, promoting the goals of ECWG and those of the Wright's Creek Environmental Committee. Ramona has been instrumental in addressing environmental issues impacting watersheds within the City of Charlottetown from storm water control to fish passage, to reducing the impact of development on fish habitat.

2015 - Development of a city-wide Brook Trout Management Plan

In 2015 the City of Charlottetown adopted a “City of Charlottetown Brook Trout Conservation and Protection Plan”.  This plan, developed by a steering committee made up of city officials and members of the Ellen’s Creek Watershed Group and the Wright’s Creek Environmental Committee, was guided by noted environmentalist, Ms. Megan Harris. The plan focuses on steps needed to restore and maintain Brook Trout habitat in the Ellen’s, Wright’s and Hermitage creeks.  Because a healthy Brook trout population is the central indicator of  water course  and watershed health all parties agreed this was the place to begin an overall, city-wide watershed plan.
