Watersheds 2016 is a 1.5 day forum that builds directly on the learnings and successes of Watersheds 2014, and will bridge with and complement the Living Waters Rally. The forum will engage stewards and leaders from across BC's freshwater community in a strategic dialogue of best strategies to support shared governance in BC. Members of watershed groups, practitioners, researchers, First Nations, government, and students and young professionals who want to make a difference in their home watersheds are welcome to attend. Through panel sessions, field trips, breakout workshops and structured peer-to-peer learning, participants will build skills and enhance capacity for watershed governance in British Columbia.
Watersheds 2016 starts with a slate of exciting field trips on the afternoon of September 30th and ends by dinner-time on October 1st.
