Thousands of children and adults visit FortWhyte every year to take a step back, breathe a little more deeply, and connect with nature. An elementary school child boarded a bus with an oak leaf collage. This will be hung on the girl's bedroom wall for many, many years. One day, an older couple will attend a lecture. Then, they might realize in the car that their backyard can be a prairie garden. FortWhyte Alive connects people to have memorable experiences and create lasting connections with nature.

Fortwhyte Alive Model Watershed Project
FortWhyte Alive's 5 lakes have been experiencing declining water quality. Staff observation and subsequent North-South Consultants Assessments of Current Water Quality Conditions were used to identify the problem. FortWhyte began collecting monthly monitoring data year round on the health of its lakes in 2013. This program is intended to be a source of data for post-secondary research and help in making water management decisions to improve lake water quality. FortWhyte lakes are home to an urban fishery, and can be used for swimming and boating.
Get the Data Pack
Abstract The following data sets contain parameters measured each month by facility staff between March 2013, 2013 and December 2017, respectively. Each year, sets of data will be revised and continued to be gathered. The data set contains five Lakes at Fort. Whyte Alive, a private facility in the south-west of Winnipeg, Manitoba. The Fort. Canada Cement's clay-pit mining operations began in 1911 and excavated Whyte lakes. According to the order in which they were excavated, these lakes included Muir (1920), Lake 2 and Lake 3 (1950), Devonian (1970), Cargill (1980) and Cargill (2 and 3). Monitoring of the wastewater treatment plant (2001) is also possible during periods when there are no ice conditions. Measuring parameters include temperature, conductivity (ice thickness and depth), chlorophyll A concentration and Secchi depth).
