Hear what BC Greens are doing to move us towards Ecosystem Based Management, and how it can help our watersheds.
The story of Ymir’s watershed is being repeated in watersheds all over the Kootenays. Quartz Creek is Ymir's sole source of water. Without it, Ymir's very survival is threatened. And yet, BC Timber sales is planning to create 3 cut-blocks of crown land that will include Ymir’s collection pond and water treatment facility.
Green MLA Sonia Furstenau, a hero of Cowichan Valley watersheds, will share the work BC Greens have been doing on reforming the professional reliance model and moving towards ecosystem based management of watersheds, and our natural resources. She will also share her experience on effective community organizing.
