Stratford Area Watershed Improvement Group: A Glimpse into the Exciting World of Watersheds on Prince Edward Island


The Stratford Area Watershed Improvement Group (SAWIG) is proud to hire local students to work in the summers on a variety of tasks and projects, including:

  • stream enhancement
  • forestry, wetland, coastal zone and buffer zone assessments and updates
  • tree/shrub planting of native Acadian forest species
  • participation at public events and activities
  • water sampling
  • maintenance at community gardens and orchard

and much more.

Our crew size has ranged from 1-3 full-time over the years, all for 8 week terms from July-August.  Thanks to all who have been employed by SAWIG over the years; without your work we would not complete the tasks needed to improve the watersheds in which we serve.

Interested in being a part of our team in the summer? Feel free to contact us and inquire.

Thanks also to the following for helping to fund our students over the years:
